I will also give you rest from all your enemies.(F)

“‘The Lord declares(G) to you that the Lord himself will establish(H) a house(I) for you: 12 When your days are over and you rest(J) with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood,(K) and I will establish his kingdom.(L) 13 He is the one who will build a house(M) for my Name,(N) and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.(O) 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son.(P) When he does wrong, I will punish him(Q) with a rod(R) wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him,(S) as I took it away from Saul,(T) whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me[b]; your throne(U) will be established(V) forever.(W)’”
