Bible: 2 Samuel 7:8-11

7:8So now, say this to my servant David: ‘This is what the Lord of hosts says: I took you from the pasture and from your work as a shepherd 1  to make you leader of my people Israel. 7:9 I was with you wherever you went, and I defeated 2  all your enemies before you. Now I will make you as famous as the great men of the earth. 3  7:10 I will establish a place for my people Israel and settle 4  them there; they will live there and not be disturbed 5  any more. Violent men 6  will not oppress them again, as they did in the beginning 7:11 and during the time when I appointed judges to lead my people Israel. Instead, I will give you relief 7  from all your enemies. The Lord declares 8  to you that he himself 9  will build a dynastic house 10  for you.
