20 David, my servant, is the one
    I chose to be king,
21     and I will always be there
    to help and strengthen him.

22 “No enemy will outsmart David,
    and he won’t be defeated
    by any hateful people.
23 I will strike down and crush
    his troublesome enemies.
24 He will always be able
    to depend on my love,
    and I will make him strong
    with my own power.
25 I will let him rule the lands
    across the rivers and seas.
26 He will say to me,
‘You are my Father
    and my God,
    as well as the mighty rock[a]
    where I am safe.'

27 “I have chosen David
    as my first-born son,
    and he will be the ruler
    of all kings on earth.
28 My love for him will last,
    and my agreement with him
    will never be broken.

29 “One of David’s descendants
    will always be king,
    and his family will rule
    until the sky disappears.
