1Yahvah remember David and all his afflictions.
2How he swore to Yahvah, and vowed to the mighty god of Jacob:
3Surely I will not come into the tent of my house, nor go up into my bed,
4nor will I give sleep to my eyes, nor slumber to my eyelids
5until I find a place for Yahvah a habitation for the mighty god of Jacob.
6Look we heard of it at Ephrathah; we found it in the fields.
7We will go into his tents; we will worship at his footstool.
8Arise Yahvah enter into the place of your rest, you and the ark of your strength.
9Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, and your saints with glory.
10For your servant David's sake do not turn away the face of your anointed.
11Yahvah has sworn in truth to David he will not turn from it: Of the fruit of your body I will set up your throne;
12if your sons will keep my contract, and my testimony that will teach them their sons will also sit on your throne forever.
13For Yahvah has been delighted with Zion; he has chosen it for his habitation:
14This is my rest forever; here I will live for I have desired it.
15I will abundantly bless her hunters; I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16I will also clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints with glory.
17There I will make the horn of David shine, and light a lamp for his anointed.
18His enemies I will clothe with shame, but my holiness will cover him.
