6 We heard of it in Ephrathah;
we found it in the fields of Jaar.
7 Let us go to his dwelling-place;
let us worship at his footstool.
8 Rise up, O Lord, and go to your resting-place,
you and the ark of your might.
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,
and let your faithful shout for joy.
10 For your servant Davids sake
do not turn away the face of your anointed one.
11 The Lord swore to David a sure oath
from which he will not turn back:
One of the sons of your body
I will set on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
and my decrees that I shall teach them,
their sons also, for evermore,
shall sit on your throne.
13 For the Lord has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his habitation:
14 This is my resting-place for ever;
here I will reside, for I have desired it.
