The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


O LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
    2 How he swore unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty One of Jacob;
    3 Surely I will not come into my house, nor go up into my bed;
    4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
    5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty One of Jacob.
    6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of Jaar.
    7 Let us go into his tabernacle: let us worship at his footstool.
    8 Arise, O LORD, into thy resting place; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
    9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
    10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
    11 The LORD hath sworn an oath unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
    12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
    13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
    14 This is my resting place for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
    15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
    16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
    17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have prepared a lamp for mine anointed.
    18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown shine forth.
