A song of ascents.

1 LORD, remember David and all his self-denial.
2 He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3 “I will not enter my house or go to my bed,
4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
5 till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6 We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:a
7 “Let us go to his dwelling place, let us worship at his footstool, saying,
8 ‘Arise, LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
9 May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.’ ”
10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one.
