1. A Song of Ascents. Jehovah, remember for David All his affliction;

2. How he sware unto Jehovah, And vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:

3. Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, Nor go up into my bed;

4. I will not give sleep to mine eyes, Or slumber to mine eyelids;

5. Until I find out a place for Jehovah, A tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob.

6. Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah: We found it in the field of the wood.

7. We will go into his tabernacles; We will worship at his footstool.

8. Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place; Thou, and the ark of thy strength.

9. Let thy priest be clothed with righteousness; And let thy saints shout for joy.

10. For thy servant David's sake Turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11. Jehovah hath sworn unto David in truth; He will not turn from it: Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

12. If thy children will keep my covenant And my testimony that I shall teach them, Their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.

13. For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for his habitation.

14. This is my resting-place for ever: Here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

15. I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

16. Her priests also will I clothe with salvation; And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17. There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

18. His enemies will I clothe with shame; But upon himself shall his crown flourish.
