Prayer for the LORD'S Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

1 Remember, O LORD, on David's behalf, All 1his affliction;
2 How he swore to the LORD And vowed to 2the Mighty One of Jacob,
3 "Surely I will not enter 3my house, Nor lie on my bed *;
4 I will not 4give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids,
5 Until I find a 5place for the LORD, A dwelling place for 6the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 Behold, we heard of it in 7Ephrathah, We found it in the 8field of Jaar.
7 Let us go into His 9dwelling place; Let us 10worship at His 11footstool *.
8 12Arise, O LORD, to Your 13resting place, You and the ark of Your 14strength.
9 Let Your priests be 15clothed with righteousness, And let Your 16godly ones sing for joy.
10 For the sake of David Your servant, Do not turn away the face of Your 17anointed.
