And if you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.”
“Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
The fear of the Lord prolongs life,
but the years of the wicked will be short.
“Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
