His seed also will I make to endure for ever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
30If his children forsake my law, And walk not in mine ordinances;
31If they break my statutes, And keep not my commandments;
32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
33But my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, Nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
34My covenant will I not break, Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
35Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David:
36His seed shall endure for ever, And his throne as the sun before me.
37It shall be established for ever as the moon, And as the faithful witness in the sky. Selah
38But thou hast cast off and rejected, Thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
39Thou hast abhorred the covenant of thy servant: Thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40Thou hast broken down all his hedges; Thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.
41All that pass by the way rob him: He is become a reproach to his neighbors.
42Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries; Thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
43Yea, thou turnest back the edge of his sword, And hast not made him to stand in the battle.
44Thou hast made his brightness to cease, And cast his throne down to the ground.
45The days of his youth hast thou shortened: Thou hast covered him with shame. Selah
46How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? How long'shall thy wrath burn like fire?
47Oh remember how short my time is: For what vanity hast thou created all the children of men!
48What man is he that shall live and not see death, That shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah
49Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, Which thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?
50Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; How I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty peoples,
51Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Jehovah, Wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
52Blessed be Jehovah for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
