A Song of degrees.
LORD, remember3 David, [and] all his afflictions:28
How he sware8 unto the LORD, [and] vowed1 unto the mighty [God] of Jacob;
Surely I will not come4 into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up4 into my bed; 3326
I will not give4 sleep to mine eyes, [or] slumber to mine eyelids,
Until I find4 out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty [God] of Jacob.
Lo, we heard1 of it at Ephratah: we found1 it in the fields of the wood.
We will go4 into his tabernacles: we will worship101 at his footstool. 7272
Arise,3 O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
Let thy priests be clothed4 with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.17
For thy servant David's sake turn not away55 the face of thine anointed.
The LORD hath sworn8 [in] truth unto David; he will not turn4 from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set4 upon thy throne.
If thy children will keep4 my covenant and my testimony that 2097 I shall teach17 them, their children shall also sit4 upon thy throne for evermore.
For the LORD hath chosen1 Zion; he hath desired14 [it] for his habitation.
This [is] my rest for ever: here will I dwell;4 for I have desired14 it.
I will abundantly15 bless17 her provision: I will satisfy55 her poor with bread.
I will also clothe55 her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout17 aloud for joy.15
There will I make the horn of David to bud:55 I have ordained1 a lamp for mine anointed.
His enemies6 will I clothe55 with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.55
