And now, LORD, you are God, and have promised this goodness to your servant:
16And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my house, that you have brought me till now? 17And yet this was a small thing in your eyes, O God; for you have also spoken of your servant's house for a great while to come, and have regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O LORD God. 18What can David speak more to you for the honor of your servant? for you know your servant. 19O LORD, for your servant's sake, and according to your own heart, have you done all this greatness, in making known all these great things. 20O LORD, there is none like you, neither is there any God beside you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 21And what one nation in the earth is like your people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make you a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before your people whom you have redeemed out of Egypt? 22For your people Israel did you make your own people for ever; and you, LORD, became their God. 23Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that you have spoken concerning your servant and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as you have said. 24Let it even be established, that your name may be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel: and let the house of David your servant be established before you. 25For you, O my God, have told your servant that you will build him an house: therefore your servant has found in his heart to pray before you. 26And now, LORD, you are God, and have promised this goodness to your servant: 27Now therefore let it please you to bless the house of your servant, that it may be before you for ever: for you bless, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever.
