The Covenant between David and God

1A song of ascents.

I

LORD, remember David and all his anxious care;* 2How he swore an oath to the LORD, vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:* 3“I will not enter the house where I live, f 2 Sm 7; 1 Chr 28, 2 . nor lie on the couch where I sleep; 4I will give my eyes no sleep, my eyelids no rest, 5Till I find a home for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.” 6“We have heard of it in Ephrathah;* we have found it in the fields of Jaar.* 7Let us enter God's dwelling; let us worship at God's footstool.” g Ps 99, 5 . 8“Arise, LORD, come to your resting place, h 8–10: Pss 2, 2; 89, 21; 95, 11; Nm 10, 35; 2 Chr 6, 41–42; Sir 24, 7 . you and your majestic ark. 9Your priests will be clothed with justice; your faithful will shout for joy.” 10For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed.

11The LORD swore an oath to David, a pledge never to be broken: i Ps 110, 4; 2 Sm 7, 12 . “Your own offspring j 11–14: Ps 68, 17; 1 Kgs 8, 13; Sir 24, 7 . I will set upon your throne. 12If your sons observe my covenant, the laws I shall teach them, Their sons, in turn, shall sit forever on your throne.” 13Yes, the LORD has chosen Zion, desired it for a dwelling: 14“This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I desire it. 15I will bless Zion with meat; its poor I will fill with bread. 16I will clothe its priests with blessing; its faithful shall shout for joy. k 2 Chr 6, 41; Is 61, 10 . 17There I will make a horn sprout for David's line; l Is 11, 1; Jer 33, 15; Ez 29, 21; Zec 3, 8; Lk 1, 69 . * I will set a lamp for my anointed. 18His foes I will clothe with shame, but on him my crown shall gleam.”
