2 Samuel 7:5 - Thus saith the Lord, shalt thou build me a house to live in?
Here's a list of some of the promises spoken by Yahweh (the God of the Bible), via a prophet named Nathan, to David.
1. "Build me a temple, and your kingdom will last forever." (7:13) However, David's kingdom died 400 years after the death of King Solomon.
2. "I will establish a permanent place for the people of Israel, and the "children of wickedness" (presumably other nations) will no longer bother them." (7:10) We know this isn't true at all.
3. "When your days are fulfilled, and you sleep with your fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom." (7:12) Okay. That was just weird.
