2 Kings (2 Samuel) Chapter 7

2 Kings (2 Samuel) 7:15

sa2 7:15


Verses 14 and 15 (Sa2 7:14-15) state the principle of judgment within the family of God.

(See Scofield) - (Co1 11:31).

It is always remedial, not penal (Heb 12:5-11).

Judgment of the wicked is penal, not remedial.

2 Kings (2 Samuel) 7:16

sa2 7:16

The Davidic Covenant

The Davidic Covenant (Sa2 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"; that is, Posterity, family

(2) A "throne"; that is, Royal authority

(3) A kingdom; that is, Sphere of rule

(4) In perpetuity; "for 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 (Sa2 7:15); (Psa 89:20-37); (Isa 24:5); (Isa 54:3).

The chastisement fell; first in the division of the kingdom under Rehoboam, and, finally, in the captivities. (Kg2 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 (Psa 89:30-37) and the Lord God will yet give to that thorn-crowned One "the throne of his father David."; (Luk 1:31-33); (Act 2:29-32); (Act 15:14-17).

See, for the other seven covenants:

(See Scofield) - (Gen 9:1)


(See Scofield) - (Gen 15:18)
