1: (A Song of degrees.) Jehovah, remember for David all his affliction; 2: How he swore unto Jehovah, vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob: 3: I will not come into the tent of my house, I will not go up to the couch of my bed; 4: I will not give sleep to mine eyes, slumber to mine eyelids, 5: Until I find out a place for Jehovah, habitations for the Mighty One of Jacob. ... 6: Behold, we heard of it at Ephratah, we found it in the fields of the wood. 7: Let us go into his habitations, let us worship at his footstool. 8: Arise, Jehovah, into thy rest, thou and the ark of thy strength. 9: Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy saints shout for joy. 10: For thy servant David's sake, turn not away the face of thine anointed. 11: Jehovah hath sworn [in] truth unto David; he will not turn from it: Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne; 12: If thy children keep my covenant, and my testimonies which I will teach them, their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne. 13: For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his dwelling: 14: This is my rest for ever; here will I dwell, for I have desired it. 15: I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her needy ones with bread; 16: And I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17: There will I cause the horn of David to bud forth; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18: His enemies will I clothe with shame; but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
