A Song of Ascents. Remember, O LORD, in David's favor, all the hardships he endured;
how he swore to the LORD and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
"I will not enter my house or get into my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."
Lo, we heard of it in Eph'rathah, we found it in the fields of Ja'ar.
"Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool!"
