1 A song of ascents: ADONAI, remember in David's favor all the hardships he endured, 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 how he swore to ADONAI, vowed to the Mighty One of Ya'akov, 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 "I will not enter the house where I live or get into my bed, 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 I will not allow myself to sleep or even close my eyes, 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,
5 until I find a place for ADONAI, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Ya'akov." 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 We heard about it in Efrat, we found it in the Fields of Ya'ar. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 Let's go into his dwelling and prostrate ourselves at his footstool. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 Go up, ADONAI, to your resting-place, you and the ark through which you give strength. 8 arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 May your cohanim be clothed with righteousness; may those loyal to you shout for joy. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."
10 For the sake of your servant David, don't turn away the face of your anointed one. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 ADONAI swore an oath to David, an oath he will not break: "One of the sons from your own body I will set on your throne. 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 sons keep my covenant and my instruction, which I will teach them, then their descendants too, forever, will sit on your throne." 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 ADONAI has chosen Tziyon, he has wanted it as his home. 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 "This is my resting-place forever, I will live here because I so much want to. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 I will bless it with plenty of meat, I will give its poor their fill of food. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 Its cohanim I will clothe with salvation, and its faithful will shout for joy. 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.
17 I will make a king sprout there from David's line and prepare a lamp for my anointed one. 17 "Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 His enemies I will clothe with shame, but on him there will be a shining crown." 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
