Bible: Jeremiah 33:15-21

33:15 In those days and at that time I will raise up for them a righteous descendant 1  of David.

‘He will do what is just and right in the land. 33:16 Under his rule Judah will enjoy safety 2  and Jerusalem 3  will live in security. At that time Jerusalem will be called “The Lord has provided us with justice.” 4  33:17 For I, the Lord, promise: “David will never lack a successor to occupy 5  the throne over the nation of Israel. 6  33:18 Nor will the Levitical priests ever lack someone to stand before me and continually offer up burnt offerings, sacrifice cereal offerings, and offer the other sacrifices.”’ 7 

33:19 The Lord spoke further to Jeremiah. 8  33:20 I, Lord, make the following promise: 9  ‘I have made a covenant with the day 10  and with the night that they will always come at their proper times. Only if you people 11  could break that covenant 33:21 could my covenant with my servant David and my covenant with the Levites ever be broken. So David will by all means always have a descendant to occupy his throne as king and the Levites will by all means always have priests who will minister before me. 12
