1O Yahweh, remember David, all his affliction;
2how he swore to Yahweh, he vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3“Surely I will not enter the tent of my house, nor go up upon the bed of my couch,
4I will not give sleep to my eyes nor slumber to my eyelids,
5until I find a place for Yahweh, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah. We found it in the fields of Jaar.
7Let’s go into his dwelling place. Let’s worship at his footstool.
8Arise, O Yahweh, to your resting place, you and the ark of your strength.
9Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let your faithful people shout for joy!
10For the sake of David your servant, do not turn away the face of your anointed one.
11Yahweh has sworn to David a truth from which he will not turn back: “I will set upon your throne one from the fruit of your body.
12If your sons will keep my covenant and my testimonies that I will teach them, their sons will also sit on your throne forever.”
13For Yahweh has chosen Zion. He has desired it for his habitation.
14“This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired her.
15I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with food.
16Her priests I will also clothe with deliverance, and her faithful people will shout aloud for joy.
17There I will make a horn sprout forth for David; I have made ready a lamp for my anointed one.
18I will clothe his enemies with shame, but upon him, his crown will shine.”
