The Davidic Covenant 2 Samuel 7:8-17.

This covenant, upon which the glorious kingdom of Christ “of the seed of David according to the flesh” is to be founded, secures:

(1) A Davidic “house”; i.e. posterity, family

(2) A “throne” i.e. royal authority

(3) A kingdom; i.e. sphere of rule

(4) In perpetuity; “or ever”

(5) And this fourfold covenant has but one condition: disobedience in the Davidic family is to be visited with chastisement; but not to the abrogation of the covenant 2 Samuel 7:15; Psalms 89:20-37; Isaiah 24:5; 54:3.

The chastisement fell; first in the division of the kingdom under Rehoboam, and, finally, in the captivities. 2 Kings 25:1-7. Since that time but one King of the Davidic family has been crowned at Jerusalem and He was crowned with thorns. But the Davidic Covenant confirmed to David by the oath of Jehovah, and renewed to Mary by the angel Gabriel, is immutable Psalms 89:30-37 and the Lord God will yet give to that thorn-crowned One “he throne of his father David.”; Luke 1:31-33; Acts 2:29-32; 15:14-17.

2 Samuel 7:8-17

8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be over my people, over Israel:

9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a , like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a , and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,

11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will his kingdom.

13 He shall build an house for , and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.

14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit , I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

15 But my shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did speak unto David.

Psalms 89:20-37

20 I have found my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall him.

22 The shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and them that hate him.

24 But my and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his in the rivers.

26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the of my salvation.

27 Also I will make him my , higher than the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my shall stand fast with him.

29 His seed also will I make to for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children my law, and walk not in my judgments;

31 If they my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

32 Then will I visit their with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

33 Nevertheless my will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

34 My covenant will I not break, nor the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35 Once have I sworn by my that I will not lie unto David.

36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the before me.

37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a witness in heaven. Selah.

Isaiah 24:5

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the covenant.

Luke 1:31-33

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a , and shalt call his name JESUS.

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father :

33 And he shall reign over the house of for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Acts 2:29-32

29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch , that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would Christ to sit on his throne;

31 He seeing this before spake of the of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are .
