The Book of Psalms
1 – O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness.
2 – How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob:
3 – If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie:
4 – If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,
5 – Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
6 – Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood.
7 – We will go into his tabernacle: We will adore in the place where his feet stood.
8 – Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified.
9 – Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice.
10 – For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed.
11 – The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne.
12 – If thy children will keep thy covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne.
13 – For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling.
14 – This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it.
15 – Blessing, I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 – I will clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy.
17 – There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
18 – His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him will my sanctification flourish.
