Prayer for the Lord’s Blessing upon the Sanctuary.
A Song of Ascents.1 Remember, O Lord, on David’s behalf,
All a his affliction;
2 How he swore to the Lord
And vowed to b the Mighty One of Jacob,
3 “Surely I will not ▼
▼ Lit come into the tabernacle ofenter d my house,
▼ Lit go up into the couch oflie on my bed;
4 I will not f give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
5 Until I find a g place for the Lord,
▼ Lit Dwelling placesA dwelling place for i the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6 Behold, we heard of it in j Ephrathah,
We found it in the k field of ▼
▼ Or the woodJaar.
7 Let us go into His ▼
▼ Lit dwelling places, n dwelling place;
Let us o worship at His p footstool.
8 q Arise, O Lord, to Your r resting place,
You and the ark of Your s strength.
9 Let Your priests be t clothed with righteousness,
And let Your u godly ones sing for joy.
10 For the sake of David Your servant,
Do not turn away the face of Your v anointed.
11 The Lord has w sworn to David
A truth from which He will not turn back:
x “Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.
12 “If your sons will keep My covenant
And My testimony which I will teach them,
Their sons also shall y sit upon your throne forever.”
13 For the Lord has z chosen Zion;
He has aa desired it for His habitation.
14 “This is My ab resting place forever;
Here I will ac dwell, for I have desired it.
15 “I will abundantly ad bless her provision;
I will ae satisfy her needy with bread.
16 “Her af priests also I will clothe with salvation,
And her ag godly ones will sing aloud for joy.
17 “There I will cause the ah horn of David to spring forth;
I have prepared a ai lamp for Mine anointed.
18 “His enemies I will aj clothe with shame,
But upon himself his ak crown shall shine.”
