1 Lord, give thought to David, and to all his troubles; 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 How he made an oath to the Lord, and gave his word to the great God of Jacob, saying, 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 Truly, I will not come into my house, or go to my bed, 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or rest to my eyeballs, 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,
5 Till I have got a place for the Lord, a resting-place for the great God of Jacob. 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 We had news of it at Ephrathah: we came to it in the fields of the wood. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 Let us go into his tent; let us give worship at his feet. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 Come back, O Lord, to your resting-place; you and the ark of your strength. 8 arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints give cries of joy. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."
10 Because of your servant David, do not give up your king. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 The Lord gave a true oath to David, which he will not take back, saying, I will give your kingdom to the fruit of your body. 11 The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath that he will not revoke: "One of your own descendants I will place on your throne--
12 If your children keep my word, and the teachings which I will give them, their children will be rulers of your kingdom for ever. 12 if your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever."
13 For the Lord's heart is on Zion, desiring it for his resting-place. 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 This is my rest for ever: here will I ever be; for this is my desire. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 My blessing will be on her food; and her poor will be full of bread. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 Her priests will be clothed with salvation; and her saints will give cries of joy. 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.
17 There I will make the horn of David fertile: I have made ready a light for my king. 17 "Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 His haters will be clothed with shame; but I will make his crown shining. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
