1 Kings 11:38-39

11:38 You must obey all I command you to do, follow my instructions, do what I approve, and keep my rules and commandments, like my servant David did. Then I will be with you and establish for you a lasting dynasty, as I did for David; I will give you Israel. 11:39 I will humiliate David’s descendants because of this, but not forever.”

tn Heb “If you obey.” In the Hebrew text v. 38 is actually one long conditional sentence, which has been broken into two parts in the translation for stylistic purposes.

tn Heb “walk in my ways.”

tn Heb “do what is right in my eyes.”

tn Heb “I will build for you a permanent house, like I built for David.”

sn Because of this. Reference is made to the idolatry mentioned earlier.

tn Heb “but not all the days.”
