"I have found [your name here] my servant;
with my holy oil have I anointed you.
My hand will hold you fast
and my arm will make you strong.
No enemy shall deceive you,
nor any wicked one bring you down.
I will crush your foes before you
and strike down those who hate you.
[What difficulties would you like to see God
crush and strike down before you?]
My faithfulness and love shall be with you,
and you shall be victorious through my Name.
I shall make your dominion extend
from the Great Sea to the River.
You will say to me, 'You are my Father/Mother,
my God, and the rock of my salvation.'
I will make you my firstborn
and higher than the kings of the earth.
I will keep my love for you forever,
and my covenant will stand firm for you.
I will establish your line forever
and your throne as the days of heaven."
"If your children forsake my law
and do not walk according to my judgments;
If they break my statutes
and do not keep my commandments;
I will punish their transgressions with a rod
and their iniquities with the lash;
But I will not take my love from you [or them],
nor let my faithfulness prove false.
I will not break my covenant,
nor change what has gone out of my lips.
Once for all I have sworn by my holiness:
'I will not lie to [your name here].
Your line shall endure forever
and your throne as the sun before me;
It shall stand fast forevermore like the moon,
the abiding witness in the sky.' "
