26 He shall call to me, You are my Father,
my God, and the rock of my salvation;
27 And I will make him my firstborn,
the most high above the kings of the earth.
28 The love I have pledged to him will I keep for ever,
and my covenant will stand fast with him.
29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever
and his throne as the days of heaven.
30 But if his children forsake my law
and cease to walk in my judgements,
31 If they break my statutes
and do not keep my commandments,
32 I will punish their offences with a rod
and their sin with scourges.
33 But I will not take from him my steadfast love
nor suffer my truth to fail.
34 My covenant will I not break
nor alter what has gone out of my lips.
35 Once for all have I sworn by my holiness
that I will not prove false to David.
36 His seed shall endure for ever
and his throne as the sun before me;
