Remember, O Lord, on David's behalf, All ahis affliction;
How he swore to the Lord And vowed to athe Mighty One of Jacob,
"Surely I will not enter amy house, Nor lie on my bed;
I will not agive sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids,
Until I find a aplace for the Lord, A dwelling place for bthe Mighty One of Jacob."
Behold, we heard of it in aEphrathah, We found it in the bfield of Jaar.
Let us go into His adwelling place; Let us bworship at His cfootstool.
aArise, O Lord, to Your bresting place, You and the ark of Your cstrength.
Let Your priests be aclothed with righteousness, And let Your bgodly ones sing for joy.
For the sake of David Your servant, Do not turn away the face of Your aanointed.
The Lord has asworn to David A truth from which He will not turn back: "bOf the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.
"If your sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I will teach them, Their sons also shall asit upon your throne forever."
For the Lord has achosen Zion; He has bdesired it for His habitation.
"This is My aresting place forever; Here I will bdwell, for I have desired it.
"I will abundantly abless her provision; I will bsatisfy her needy with bread.
"Her apriests also I will clothe with salvation, And her agodly ones will sing aloud for joy.
"There I will cause the ahorn of David to spring forth; I have prepared a blamp for Mine anointed.
"His enemies I will aclothe with shame, But upon himself his bcrown shall shine."
