Remember, O Lord, in David’s favor,

all ythe hardships he endured,

how he swore to the Lord

and zvowed to athe Mighty One of Jacob,

“I will not enter my house

or get into my bed,

I will not bgive sleep to my eyes

or slumber to my eyelids,

until I cfind a place for the Lord,

a dwelling place for athe Mighty One of Jacob.”

Behold, we heard of it in dEphrathah;

we found it in ethe fields of Jaar.

“Let us go to his dwelling place;

let us fworship at his gfootstool!”

hArise, O Lord, and go to your iresting place,

you and the ark of your jmight.

Let your kpriests be lclothed with righteousness,

and let your msaints shout for joy.

10  For the sake of your servant David,

ndo not turn away the face of oyour anointed one.

11  pThe Lord swore to David a sure oath

qfrom which he will not turn back:

r“One of the sons of your body1

I will set on your throne.

12  If your sons keep my covenant

and my testimonies that I shall teach them,

their sons also forever

shall ssit on your throne.”

13  For the Lord has tchosen Zion;

he has udesired it for his dwelling place:

14  “This is my vresting place forever;

here I will wdwell, for I have desired it.

15  I will abundantly xbless her provisions;

I will ysatisfy her poor with bread.

16  Her zpriests I will clothe with salvation,

and her zsaints will shout for joy.

17  There I will make aa horn to sprout for David;

I have prepared ba lamp for cmy anointed.

18  His enemies I will dclothe with shame,

but on him his crown will shine.”
