(131-1) <A gradual canticle.> O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness.
(131-2) How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob:
(131-3) If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie:
(131-4) If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,
(131-5) Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
(131-6) Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood.
