Brenton Septuagint Translation
Remember David and All his Affliction
1A Song of Degrees. Lord, remember David, and all his meekness:
2how he sware to the Lord, and vowed to the God of Jacob, saying,
3I will not go into the tabernacle of my house; I will not go up to the couch of my bed;
4I will not give sleep to mine eyes, nor slumber to mine eyelids, nor rest to my temples,
5until I find a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
6Behold, we heard of it in Ephratha; we found it in the fields of the wood.
7Let us enter into his tabernacles: let us worship at the place where his feet stood.
8Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thine holiness.
9Thy priests shall clothe themselves with righteousness; and thy saints shall exult.
10For the sake of thy servant David turn not away the face of thine anointed.
11The Lord sware in truth to David, and he will not annul it, saying, Of the fruit of thy body will I set a king upon thy throne.
12If thy children will deep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them, their children also shall sit upon thy throne for ever.
13For the Lord has elected Sion, he has chosen her for a habitation for himself, saying,
14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have chosen it.
15I will surely bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16I will clothe her priests with salvation; and her saints shall greatly exult.
17There will I cause to spring up a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for mine anointed.
18His enemies will I clothe with a shame; but upon himself shall my holiness flourish.
