1: A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David [and] all his afflictions; 2: How he swore to the LORD, [and] vowed to the mighty [God] of Jacob; 3: Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4: I will not give sleep to my eyes, [or] slumber to my eyelids, 5: Until I find a place for the LORD, a habitation for the mighty [God] of Jacob. 6: Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. 7: We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. 8: Arise, O LORD, 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 thy anointed. 11: The LORD hath sworn [in] truth to David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. 12: If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them; their children also shall sit upon thy throne for ever. 13: For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired [it] for his habitation. 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 poor with bread. 16: I will also clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17: There will I make the horn of David to bud, I have ordained a lamp for my anointed. 18: His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
