1: A Song of the Ascents. Remember, Jehovah, for David, all his afflictions. 2: Who hath sworn to Jehovah. He hath vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3: 'If I enter into the tent of my house, If I go up on the couch of my bed, 4: If I give sleep to mine eyes, To mine eyelids -- slumber, 5: Till I do find a place for Jehovah, Tabernacles for the Mighty One of Jacob. 6: 'Lo, we have heard it in Ephratah, We have found it in the fields of the forest. 7: We come in to His tabernacles, We bow ourselves at His footstool. 8: Arise, O Jehovah, to Thy rest, Thou, and the ark of Thy strength, 9: Thy priests do put on righteousness, And Thy pious ones cry aloud. 10: For the sake of David Thy servant, Turn not back the face of Thine anointed. 11: Jehovah hath sworn truth to David, He turneth not back from it: Of the fruit of thy body, I set on the throne for thee. 12: If thy sons keep My covenant, And My testimonies that I teach them, Their sons also for ever and ever, Do sit on the throne for thee. 13: For Jehovah hath fixed on Zion, He hath desired [it] for a seat to Himself, 14: This [is] My rest for ever and ever, Here do I sit, for I have desired it. 15: Her provision I greatly bless, Her needy ones I satisfy [with] bread, 16: And her priests I clothe [with] salvation, And her pious ones do sing aloud. 17: There I cause to spring up a horn for David, I have arranged a lamp for Mine anointed. 18: His enemies I do clothe [with] shame, And upon him doth his crown flourish!
