6:14 keeping covenant and showing steadfast love. Solomon’s words of praise touch on both sides of the covenant relationship between God and His people. God keeps His covenant, and the people must walk in it “with all their heart.” Violation of the covenant invites divine retribution (Deut. 7:9–12; 30:15–20). This idea of the covenant is central in the books of the Chronicles (1 Chr. 28:9 note).
