Holman Christian Standard Bible
1A song of ascents. LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured,
2and how he swore an oath to the LORD, making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:"
3I will not enter my house or get into my bed,
4I will not allow my eyes to sleep or my eyelids to slumber
5until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
6We heard of the ark in Ephrathah; we found it in the fields of Jaar.
7Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool.
8Rise up, LORD, come to Your resting place, You and Your powerful ark.
9May Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and may Your godly people shout for joy.
10Because of Your servant David, do not reject Your anointed one.
11The LORD swore an oath to David, a promise He will not abandon:" I will set one of your descendants on your throne.
12If your sons keep My covenant and My decrees that I will teach them, their sons will also sit on your throne forever."
13For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His home:"
14This is My resting place forever; I will make My home here because I have desired it.
15I will abundantly bless its food; I will satisfy its needy with bread.
16I will clothe its priests with salvation, and its godly people will shout for joy.
17There I will make a horn grow for David; I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.
18I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown he wears will be glorious."
