David and Zion Chosen

A song of ascents.

1 Lord, remember David and all the hardships he endured,a 2 and how he swore an oath to the Lord, making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3 "I will not enter my houseb or get into my bed,c 4 I will not allow my eyes to sleep or my eyelids to slumber 5 until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."d 6 We heard of [the ark] in Ephrathah;e we found it in the fields of Jaar.f 7 Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool.g 8 Arise, Lord, come to Your resting place, You and the ark [that shows] Your strength. 9 May Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and may Your godly people shout for joy. 10 Because of Your servant David, do not reject Your anointed one.h i 11 The Lord swore an oath to David, a promise He will not abandon: "I will set one of your descendantsj on your throne.k 12 If your sons keep My covenant and My decrees that I will teach them, their sons will also sit on your throne, forever."l 13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His home:m 14 "This is My resting place forever; I will make My home here because I have desired it. 15 I will abundantly bless its food; I will satisfy its needy with bread. 16 I will clothe its priests with salvation, and its godly people will shout for joy. 17 There I will make a horn grow for David;n I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.o 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown he wearsp will be glorious."
