The Sceptre Promises of a Royal Line
There was a "breach" between the twin sons of Judah, Pharez and Zarah. (Gen. 38:29)
The line of Pharez was to be exalted with a line of kings from the time of David until Zedekiah. Zarah was to be lowly with no kings.
Long before the destruction and captivity of Israel in the 8th century B.C., and the destruction of Jerusalem and capture of Zedekiah in 586 B.C., Israelites migrated westward.
Some of the tribe of Dan migrated to Ireland and were known as the "Tuatha de Danaan". Some of the Jewish line of Zarah migrated with them and a line of Irish kings was established.

Thus said the Lord God, remove the diadem, and take off the crown...exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high Ezek. 21:26
The daughter of Zedekiah was taken by Jeremiah to Ireland where she continued the Royal family descending from David.
Thus the sceptre and the prophecy would be unbroken: There shall not fail you a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel 2 Chron. 6:16
It is most interesting that God says "upon the throne of Israel" and not Judah. The Jews have not had a king since the days of Zedekiah, almost 2600 years, yet the descendants of Israel have had an unbroken line of kings! This throne will be extent at the return of Jesus Christ. He will not return to a non-existant throne!
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David.
