“When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.
The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.” Proverbs 11:7-8 (KJB)
“LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions: how he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
‘Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.’
Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. We will go into His tabernacles: we will worship at His footstool.
Arise, O LORD, into Thy rest; Thou, and the ark of Thy strength. Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let Thy saints shout for joy.
For Thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of Thine anointed.
The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; He will not turn from it;
‘Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. If thy children will keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.’
For the LORD hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for His habitation. This is My rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for Mine Anointed. His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon Himself shall His crown flourish.” Psalm 132:1-18 (KJB)
