If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;89.31 break: Heb. profane
Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.89.33 will…: Heb. I will not make void from him89.33 to fail: Heb. to lie
My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.89.35 that…: Heb. if I lie
His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
