Nevertheless, the Lord was unwilling to destroy David’s dynasty because of the covenant that he had made with David, especially since he had promised to give him and to his sons the reigning presence of an heir forever.
Sin embargo el SEÑOR no quiso destruir la casa de David a causa del pacto que había hecho con David, y porque le había prometido darle una lámpara a él y a sus hijos para siempre.
God is true with all of His promises. He wants us all to worship and adore Him, but there are some who go the other path. There are consequences, but He gave us the perfect light in His Son…Jesus Christ. All honor and glory to our God!
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he has visited and redeemed his people, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David
Bendito sea el Señor, Dios de Israel, porque nos ha visitado y ha efectuado redención para su pueblo, y nos ha levantado un cuerno de salvación en la casa de David su siervo
Luke speaks here of Jesus. We celebrate His life and death and life this weekend. He offers us new life in Him and that is what Easter is all about. All people bow before Jesus who is God.
1And it came to pass after this, that the king of the children of Ammon died, and Hanun his son reigned in his stead. 2Then said David, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, as his father shewed kindness unto me. And David sent to comfort him by the hand of his servants for his father. And David’s servants came into the land of the children of Ammon. 3And the princes of the children of Ammon said unto Hanun their lord, Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? hath not David rather sent his servants unto thee, to search the city, and to spy it out, and to overthrow it? 4Wherefore Hanun took David’s servants, and shaved off the one half of their beards, and cut off their garments in the middle, even to their buttocks, and sent them away.
1 Sucedió después de esto que murió el rey de los hijos de Amón, y su hijo Hanún reinó en su lugar. 2 Y David dijo: Seré bondadoso con Hanún, hijo de Nahas, tal como su padre fue bondadoso conmigo. Envió, pues, David algunos de sus siervos para consolarlo por la muerte de su padre. Pero cuando los siervos de David llegaron a la tierra de los amonitas, 3 los príncipes de los amonitas dijeron a Hanún su señor: ¿Crees tú que David está honrando a tu padre porque te ha enviado consoladores? ¿No te ha enviado David sus siervos para reconocer la ciudad, para espiarla y conquistarla? 4 Entonces Hanún tomó a los siervos de David, les rasuró la mitad de la barba, les cortó los vestidos por la mitad hasta las caderas, y los despidió.
If we really are in prayer and worship to God, He will lead us to who our friends and who our enemies are. Hanun was not in prayer and assumed that David was his enemy. David meant goodwill and Hanun took it as an attack. How many times do we hurt the ones who are trying to help us? If we bring our worries and fears to God, He will dispel them and guide us in His perfect will. I have hurt those who have tried to help me and I have been hurt when trying to help. Let’s pray and consider before jumping to conclusions.
And it shall be, if you will hearken unto all that I command you, and will walk in my ways, and do what is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with you, and build you a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto you.
“Y sucederá que si escuchas todo lo que te ordeno y andas en mis caminos, y haces lo recto delante de mis ojos, guardando mis estatutos y mis mandamientos, como hizo David mi siervo, entonces estaré contigo y te edificaré una casa perdurable como la que edifiqué a David, y yo te entregaré Israel
This promise made to Solomon by God can also be true for us. If we will listen and heed our heavenly Father, He will bless us in all of our ways and lead us down a path of glory. He will build us a sure house; we must listen and do as He tells us. How do we do this? We read the scripture, we pray and we listen to that “still small voice” which is the Holy Spirit. He will not ask us to do anything contrary to His Word, but He may ask us to do things that are against man’s principals. Oh, Father God, may we always heed You in all ways; please help us to see the correct path. Praise You God; Praise You!
