Lord, remember David and all his suffering.
He made an oath to the Lord, a promise to the Mighty God of Jacob.
He said, "I will not go home to my house, or lie down on my bed,
or close my eyes, or let myself sleep
until I find a place for the Lord. I want to provide a home for the Mighty God of Jacob."
We heard about the Ark in Bethlehem. We found it at Kiriath Jearim.
Let's go to the Lord's house. Let's worship at his footstool.
Rise, Lord, and come to your resting place; come with the Ark that shows your strength.
May your priests do what is right. May your people sing for joy.
For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your appointed king.
The Lord made a promise to David, a sure promise that he will not take back. He promised, "I will make one of your descendants rule as king after you.
If your sons keep my agreement and the rules that I teach them, then their sons after them will rule on your throne forever and ever."
The Lord has chosen Jerusalem; he wants it for his home.
He says, "This is my resting place forever. Here is where I want to stay.
I will bless her with plenty; I will fill her poor with food.
I will cover her priests with salvation, and those who worship me will really sing for joy.
"I will make a king come from the family of David. I will provide my appointed one descendants to rule after him.
I will cover his enemies with shame, but his crown will shine." A song for going up to worship. Of David.
