2 Samuel 7
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And when the King sat in his house and LORD JEHOVAH gave him rest from all of his enemies 2The King said to Nathan the Prophet: “See that I dwell in a house of cedar, and the ark of God sits within curtains!” 3And Nathan said to the King: “Do all that is in your heart, because LORD JEHOVAH is with you!”

4In that night was the response of LORD JEHOVAH unto Nathan the Prophet saying: 5“Go say to my Servant David: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH, ‘You shall not build for me a house for my dwelling 6Because I have not dwelt in a house from the day that I brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt and until today, and I have been walking in tents 7In every place where I walked in all of the children of Israel, did I speak a word to one of the tribes of Israel that I commanded to shepherd my people Israel saying: “Why have you not built for me a house of cedar?"

8Behold, thus you shall speak to my Servant David: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH Almighty, ‘I have taken you from the sheepfold from behind sheep, that you would be the Leader over my people Israel 9And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I destroyed all of your enemies from your presence, and I shall make you a great name like the name of the Princes that are in Earth 10And I shall make a place for my people Israel, and I shall plant it, and I shall make it dwell in its place in peace, and it shall not tremble again, and the sons of evil shall not subjugate it again as at the first 11From the day that I commanded you a Judge over my people Israel, also to you I have given rest from all of your enemies, and LORD JEHOVAH has told you that LORD JEHOVAH has made you a household 12And whenever your days are finished and you have slept with your fathers, I shall raise up your seed from after you which came out from your loins, and I shall establish his kingdom 13And he shall build me a house for my name, and I shall establish the throne of his kingdom until eternity 14I shall be to him for a father and he will be to me for a son, and in an offense I shall rebuke him with the rod of a man and with the scourging of the sons of men 15And my mercy I shall not take from him, as that which I took from Shaul, who was before you, and I removed him from my presence 16And your household shall be faithful and your kingdom until eternity before me. And your throne shall be established before me until eternity” 17All of these words and all this vision, thus spoke Nathan the Prophet to David

18And King David came and sat before LORD JEHOVAH, and he said: “Who am I, LORD JEHOVAH God, and what is my household that you have brought me here? 19This is small in your eyes, LORD JEHOVAH God, that you have spoken about the house of your Servant from long beforehand. This is the instruction of men, LORD JEHOVAH God 20And what will your Servant David more say to you? You know your Servant, LORD JEHOVAH God! 21Because of your word and according to your heart you have done all this, to make grandeur known to your Servant! 22Because of this, you are great LORD JEHOVAH God, because there is none like you and there is no God outside of you whom we have heard with our ears! 23And who is like your people Israel, one people in Earth? For God went to save the people and to make it a name and to do mighty works for it and spectacles over the land from former times, for your people whom you saved for yourself from Egypt, the people whose God you are! 24And you have established your people Israel for yourself, that it shall be a people for yourself until eternity, and you LORD JEHOVAH have been God to them! 25And now, LORD JEHOVAH God, the word that you have spoken about your Servant and about his house, confirm until eternity, and do according to what you have spoken! 26And your name shall increase unto eternity according to what you have spoken, LORD JEHOVAH Almighty God of Israel, and the house of your Servant David will be established in your presence until eternity 27Because you LORD JEHOVAH Almighty, God of Israel, have revealed to the ear of your Servant and you said7: ‘I shall build for you a house.’ because of this, your Servant thought in his heart to pray in your presence this prayer 28And now, LORD JEHOVAH God, you are God, and your words shall be true that you have spoken this goodness concerning your Servant 29Therefore forgive and bless the house of your Servant, that it shall be in your presence for eternity, because you are LORD JEHOVAH God! You have spoken, and from your blessing the house of your Servant will be blessed until eternity!”
