Aliança com Deus
7 Not because ye are more in number than all the nations, did the Lord desire you and make choice of you; for ye are the fewest of all the nations;
8 But on account of the love of the Lord for you, and because he keepeth the oath which he hath sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, out of the hand of Pharaoh the king of Egypt.
9 Know then that the Eternal thy God, is the God, the faithful God, who keepeth the covenant and the mercy with those that love him and with those that keep his commandments to the thousandth generation;
10 And repayeth those that hate him to their face, to destroy them; he will not delay to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
11 Therefore shalt thou keep the commandment, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which I command thee this day, to do them.
12 And it shall come to pass in reward for that ye will hearken to these ordinances, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God will keep unto thee the covenant and the kindness which he hath sworn unto thy fathers:
7 He is the Lord our God: over all the earth are his decrees.
8 He remembereth his covenant for ever, the word which he hath commanded, to the thousandth generation.
9 Which he covenanted with Abraham; and his oath unto Isaac;
Now therefore, if you will truly obey my voice, and keep my covenant, then shall ye be unto me a peculiar treasure above all nations; for all the earth is mine:
And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation; these are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
For the mountains may depart, and the hills may be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith he that hath mercy on thee, the Lord.
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and between thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant: to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou sojournest, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
9 And God said unto Abraham, But thou, for thy part, shalt keep my covenant, thou and thy seed after thee, in their generations.
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and between you, and between thy seed after thee: Every manchild among you shall be circumcised.
11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and this shall serve as the token of the covenant between me and you.
And the Lord became gracious unto them, and had mercy on them, and turned his regard unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, and he cast them not off from his presence even until now.
For a merciful God is the Lord thy God; he will not forsake thee, nor destroy thee; and he will not forget the covenant of thy fathers which he hath sworn unto them.
34 I will not profane my covenant, and what is gone out of my lips will I not alter.
35 One thing have I sworn by my holiness, that I will not lie unto David.
36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne shall be like the sun before me.
37 Like the moon shall it be firmly established for ever, and as this faithful witness in the sky." Selah.
