Lord, remember David and all his trouble :
how he swore an oath to the Lord,
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob;
I will not enter the shelter of my house :
nor climb into the comfort of my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes :
or slumber to my eyelids,
Till I find out a place for the ark of the Lord :
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.
Lo, we heard of it at Ephrathah :
we found it in the fields of Ja-ar.
Let us go to the place of his dwelling :
let us fall upon our knees before his footstool.
Arise, O Lord, into your resting-place :
you, and the ark of your might.
Let your priests be clothed with righteousness :
and let your faithful ones shout for joy.
For the sake of David your servant :
do not turn away the face of your anointed.
The Lord has sworn to David :
an oath which he will not break;
One who is the fruit of your body :
I will set upon your throne.
If your children will keep my covenant
and the commands which I teach them :
their children also shall sit upon your throne for ever.
For the Lord has chosen Zion for himself :
he has desired it for his habitation.
This shall be my resting-place for ever :
here will I dwell, for my delight is in her.
I will bless her provisions with abundance :
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
I will clothe her priests with salvation :
and her faithful ones shall shout for joy.
There will I make a horn to sprout for the family of David :
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
As for his enemies, I will cover them with shame :
but upon his head shall his crown be bright.
