2 Samuel 23
Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 Now these are the last words of David: David son of Jesse says, and the man who was raised on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, says,
2 The Spirit of the Lord spoke in and by me, and His word was upon my tongue.
3 The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me, When one rules over men righteously, ruling in the fear of God,
4 He dawns on them like the morning light when the sun rises on a cloudless morning, when the tender grass springs out of the earth through clear shining after rain.
5 Truly does not my house stand so with God? For He has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure. For will He not cause to prosper all my help and my desire?
6 But wicked, godless, and worthless lives are all like thorns to be thrust away, because they cannot be taken with the hand.
You are our hope. You hold us in the palm of your mighty hand. Your love will never let us go. Light upon our hearts and cause us to overcome with Joyfulness and Strength in the matter! Amen
