1 (131-1) <A gradual canticle.> O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness. 1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.
2 (131-2) How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob: 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 (131-3) If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie: 3 "I will not enter my house or go to my bed--
4 (131-4) If I shall 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 (131-5) Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. 5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 (131-6) Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood. 6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 (131-7) We will go into his tabernacle: we will adore in the place where his feet stood. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool--
8 (131-8) Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified. 8 arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 (131-9) Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."
10 (131-10) For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed. 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.
11 (131-11) The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy 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 (131-12) If thy children will keep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy 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 (131-13) For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling. 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 (131-14) This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it. 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it--
15 (131-15) Blessing I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.
16 (131-16) I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy. 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.
17 (131-17) There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared 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 (131-18) His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him shall my sanctification flourish. 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
