1A Song of degrees. Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], remember David [Beloved], [and] all his afflictions:
2How he swore unto the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], [and] vowed unto the mighty [God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]] of Ya’akov [Heel of God];
3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4I will not give sleep to mine eyes, [or] slumber to mine eyelids,
5Until I find out a place for the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], an habitation for the mighty [God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]] of Ya’akov [Heel of God].
6Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah [Place of Fruitfulness]: we found it in the fields of the wood.
7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
8Arise, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], into youri rest; youi, and the ark of youri strength.
9Let youri priests be clothed with righteousness; and let youri saints shout for joy.
10For youri servant David [Beloved]’s sake turn not away the face of youri anointed.
11The Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] has sworn [in] tunto David [Beloved]; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of youri body will I set upon youri throne.
12If youri children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon youri throne forevermore.
13For the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] has chosen Tziyon [Parched Place]; he has desired [it] for his habitation.
14This [is] my rest forever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
17There will I make the horn of David [Beloved] to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
