013:017:001
Now it came to pass,
as David sat in his house,
that David said to Nathan the prophet,
Lo,
I dwell in an house of cedars,
but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under curtains.


013:017:002
Then Nathan said unto David,
Do all that is in thine heart;
for God is with thee.


013:017:003
And it came to pass the same night,
that the word of God came to Nathan,
saying,


013:017:004
Go and tell David my servant,
Thus saith the LORD,
Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in:


013:017:005
For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day;
but have gone from tent to tent,
and from one tabernacle to another.


013:017:006
Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel,
spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel,
whom I commanded to feed my people,
saying,
Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?


013:017:007
Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David,
Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
I took thee from the sheepcote,
even from following the sheep,
that thou shouldest be ruler over my people Israel:


013:017:008
And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked,
and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee,
and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth.


013:017:009
Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel,
and will plant them,
and they shall dwell in their place,
and shall be moved no more;
neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more,
as at the beginning,


013:017:010
And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel.
Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies.
Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an house.


013:017:011
And it shall come to pass,
when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers,
that I will raise up thy seed after thee,
which shall be of thy sons;
and I will establish his kingdom.


013:017:012
He shall build me an house,
and I will stablish his throne for ever.


013:017:013
I will be his father,
and he shall be my son:
and I will not take my mercy away from him,
as I took it from him that was before thee:


013:017:014
But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever:
and his throne shall be established for evermore.


013:017:015
According to all these words,
and according to all this vision,
so did Nathan speak unto David.


013:017:016
And David the king came and sat before the LORD,
and said,
Who am I,
O LORD God,
and what is mine house,
that thou hast brought me hitherto?


013:017:017
And yet this was a small thing in thine eyes,
O God;
for thou hast also spoken of thy servant's house for a great while to come,
and hast regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree,
O LORD God.


013:017:018
What can David speak more to thee for the honour of thy servant?
for thou knowest thy servant.


013:017:019
O LORD,
for thy servant's sake,
and according to thine own heart,
hast thou done all this greatness,
in making known all these great things.


013:017:020
O LORD,
there is none like thee,
neither is there any God beside thee,
according to all that we have heard with our ears.


013:017:021
And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel,
whom God went to redeem to be his own people,
to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness,
by driving out nations from before thy people whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?


013:017:022
For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever;
and thou,
LORD,
becamest their God.


013:017:023
Therefore now,
LORD,
let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established for ever,
and do as thou hast said.


013:017:024
Let it even be established,
that thy name may be magnified for ever,
saying,
The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel,
even a God to Israel:
and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee.


013:017:025
For thou,
O my God,
hast told thy servant that thou wilt build him an house:
therefore thy servant hath found in his heart to pray before thee.


013:017:026
And now,
LORD,
thou art God,
and hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:


013:017:027
Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant,
that it may be before thee for ever:
for thou blessest,
O LORD,
and it shall be blessed for ever.
