Your throne has been secure from ancient times; you have always been king. 1
But you, O Lord, reign forever; your throne endures from generation to generation.
Your house and your kingdom will stand before me 1 permanently; your dynasty 2 will be permanent.’”
Your throne, 1 O God, is permanent. 2 The scepter 3 of your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
‘I will give you an eternal dynasty 1 and establish your throne throughout future generations.’” 2 (Selah)
Equity and justice are the foundation of your throne. 1 Loyal love and faithfulness characterize your rule. 2
So I have decided 1 to build a temple to honor the Lord 2 my God, as the Lord instructed my father David, ‘Your son, whom I will put on your throne in your place, is the one who will build a temple to honor me.’ 3
