67He rejected the tent of Joseph,
he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim;68but he chose the tribe of Judah,
Mount Zion, which he loves.69He built his sanctuary like the high heavens,
like the earth, which he has founded forever.70He chose his servant David,
and took him from the sheepfolds;71from tending the nursing ewes he brought him
to be the shepherd of his people Jacob,
of Israel, his inheritance.72With upright heart he tended them,
and guided them with skillful hand.
