1 Chronicles 17:9-10

Context
17:9 I will establish a place for my people Israel and settle 1  them there; they will live there and not be disturbed 2  anymore. Violent men will not oppress them again, as they did in the beginning 3  17:10 and during the time when I appointed judges to lead my people Israel. I will subdue all your enemies.

“‘“I declare to you that the Lord will build a dynastic house 4  for you!

1 tn Heb “plant.”

2 tn Heb “shaken.”

3 tn Heb “and sons of violence will no longer consume them as in the beginning.”

4 tn Here the word “house” is used in a metaphorical sense, referring to a royal dynasty. The Lord’s use of the word here plays off the literal sense that David had in mind as he contemplated building a temple (“house”) for the Lord. In the translation the adjective “dynastic” is supplied to indicate that the term is used metaphorically.
