Jeremiah 33:14-26New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Davidic Kingdom
14 ‘Behold, days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah.15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she will be called: the Lord is our righteousness.’17 For thus says the Lord, ‘[a]David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel;18 [b]and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices [c]continually.’”
19 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,20 “Thus says the Lord, ‘If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time,21 then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant so that he will not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levitical priests, My ministers.22 As the host of heaven cannot be counted and the sand of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the [d]descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me.’”
23 And the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying,24 “Have you not observed what this people have spoken, saying, ‘The two families which the Lord chose, He has rejected them’? Thus they despise My people, no longer are they as a nation [e]in their sight.25 Thus says the Lord, ‘If My covenant for day and night stand not, and the [f]fixed patterns of heaven and earth I have not established,26 then I would reject the [g]descendants of Jacob and David My servant, [h]not taking from his [i]descendants rulers over the [j]descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But I will restore their [k]fortunes and will have mercy on them.’”
