2 As David’s [a]time to die drew near, he charged Solomon his son, saying,2 “I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong, therefore, and [b]show yourself a man.3 Keep the charge of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn,4 so that the Lord may carry out His promise which He spoke concerning me, saying, ‘If your sons are careful of their way, to walk before Me in [c]truth with all their heart and with all their soul, [d]you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.’
4 As for you, if you will walk before Me as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and uprightness, doing according to all that I have commanded you and will keep My statutes and My ordinances,5 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, just as I [a]promised to your father David, saying, ‘[b]You shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.’
