|A Song of degrees.
David, and all his afflictions:
|2||How he sware unto
the LORD, and vowed unto 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 mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
|5||Until I find out a
place for the LORD, an 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 thine anointed.
|11||The LORD 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
will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their
children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
|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.
||my rest for ever|
|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 mine anointed.
|18||His enemies will I
clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
