O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
Remember how he swore an oath to the LORD and made this vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
"I will not step inside my house,
get into my bed, shut my eyes, or close my eyelids
until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."
Now, we have heard about the ark [of the promise] being in Ephrathah. We have found it in Jaar.
