1 A Song of Ascents. Lord, remember David And all his afflictions; 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 How he swore to the Lord, And vowed 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 "Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house, Or go up to the comfort of my bed; 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 I will not give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to 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 Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah; We found it in the fields of the woods. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 Let us go into His tabernacle; Let us worship at His footstool. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 Arise, 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 shout for joy. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."
10 For Your servant David's sake, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 The Lord has sworn in truth to David; He will not turn from it: "I will set upon your throne 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 sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I shall teach them, Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore." 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 has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place: 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 "This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation, And her saints shall shout aloud for 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 grow; I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed. 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 upon Himself His crown shall flourish." 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
