GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured. 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 Remember how he swore an oath to the LORD and made this vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 "I will not step inside my house, 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 get into my bed, shut my eyes, or close my eyelids 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,
5 until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob." 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 Now, we have heard about the ark [of the promise] being in Ephrathah. We have found it in Jaar. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 Let's go to his dwelling place. Let's worship at his footstool. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 O LORD, arise, and come to your resting place with the ark of your power. 8 arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 Clothe your priests with righteousness. Let your godly ones sing with 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 anointed one. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 The LORD swore an oath to David. This is a truth he will not take back: "I will set one of your own descendants 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 are faithful to my promise and my written instructions that I will teach them, then their descendants will also sit on your throne forever." 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 Zion. He wants it for his home. 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 "This will be my resting place forever. Here I will sit enthroned because I want Zion. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 I will certainly bless all that Zion needs. I will satisfy its needy people with food. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 I will clothe its priests with salvation. Then its godly ones will sing joyfully. 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.
17 There I will make a horn sprout up for David. I will 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 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on my anointed one will shine." 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
