He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house or go to my bed,
I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
“Let us go to his dwelling place, let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.’ ”
For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one.
The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne.
If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.”
