New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Lord, remember David and all his suffering. 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 He made an oath to the Lord, a promise to the Mighty God of Jacob. 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 He said, "I will not go home to my house, or lie down on my bed, 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 or close my eyes, or let myself sleep 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,
5 until I find a place for the Lord. I want to provide a home for the Mighty God of Jacob." 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 We heard about the Ark in Bethlehem. We found it at Kiriath Jearim. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 Let's go to the Lord's house. Let's worship at his footstool. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 Rise, Lord, and come to your resting place; come with the Ark that shows your strength. 8 arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 May your priests do what is right. May your people sing for joy. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."
10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your appointed king. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 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. 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 agreement and the rules that I teach them, then their sons after them will rule on your throne forever and 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 The Lord has chosen Jerusalem; he wants it for his home. 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 He says, "This is my resting place forever. Here is where I want to stay. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 I will bless her with plenty; I will fill her poor with food. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 I will cover her priests with salvation, and those who worship me will really sing for joy. 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.
17 "I will make a king come from the family of David. I will provide my appointed one descendants to rule after him. 17 "Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 I will cover his enemies with shame, but his crown will shine." A song for going up to worship. Of David. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
