29 So I will establish his [a](A)descendants forever,
And his (B)throne (C)as the days of heaven.

30 “If his sons (D)abandon My Law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they [b]violate My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their wrongdoing with the (E)rod,
And their guilt with [c]afflictions.
33 But I will not [d]withhold (F)My favor from him,
Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.
34 I will not [e]violate My (G)covenant,
Nor will I (H)alter [f]the utterance of My lips.
35 [g]Once I have (I)sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie to David.
36 His [h](J)descendants shall endure forever,
And his (K)throne (L)as the sun before Me.
37 It shall be established forever (M)like the moon,
And a (N)witness in the sky is faithful.” Selah
