and all that he suffered.
He vowed to the Mighty One of Israel,*
I will not let myself rest.
nor close my eyelids in slumber
a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.”
then we found it in the distant countryside of Jaar.
let us worship at the footstool of his throne.
along with the Ark, the symbol of your power.
may your loyal servants sing for joy.
do not reject the king you have anointed.
with a promise he will never take back:
“I will place one of your descendants
on your throne.
and the laws that I teach them,
then your royal line
will continue forever and ever.”
13 For the Lord has chosen Jerusalem* ;
he has desired it for his home.
“I will live here, for this is the home I desired.
I will satisfy its poor with food.
its faithful servants will sing for joy.
my anointed one will be a light for my people.
but he will be a glorious king.”
