O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.12
He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:23
"I will not enter my house3 or go to my bed--
I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place4 for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
We heard it in Ephrathah,5 we came upon it in the fields of Jaara:b67
"Let us go to his dwelling place;7 let us worship at his footstool8--
arise, O LORD,9 and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with righteousness;10 may your saints11 sing for joy."
For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
