A Song of the going up.1 Lord, give thought to David, and to all his troubles; 2 How he made an oath to the Lord, and gave his word to the great God of Jacob, saying, 3 Truly, I will not come into my house, or go to my bed, 4 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or rest to my eyeballs, 5 Till I have got a place for the Lord, a resting-place for the great God of Jacob. 6 We had news of it at Ephrathah: we came to it in the fields of the wood. 7 Let us go into his tent; let us give worship at his feet. 8 Come back, O Lord, to your resting-place; you and the ark of your strength. 9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints give cries of joy. 10 Because of your servant David, do not give up your king. 11 The Lord gave a true oath to David, which he will not take back, saying, I will give your kingdom to the fruit of your body. 12 If your children keep my word, and the teachings which I will give them, their children will be rulers of your kingdom for ever. 13 For the Lord's heart is on Zion, desiring it for his resting-place. 14 This is my rest for ever: here will I ever be; for this is my desire. 15 My blessing will be on her food; and her poor will be full of bread. 16 Her priests will be clothed with salvation; and her saints will give cries of joy. 17 There I will make the horn of David fertile: I have made ready a light for my king. 18 His haters will be clothed with shame; but I will make his crown shining.
