Psalms - Chapter 132

O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.   1

He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:   2

"I will not enter my house or go to my bed-   3

I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids,   4

till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."   5

We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar :   6

"Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool-   7

arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.   8

May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy."   9

For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one.   10

The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath that he will not revoke: "One of your own descendants I will place on your throne-   11

if your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever."   12

For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling:   13

"This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it-   14

I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.   15

I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.   16

"Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one.   17

I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."   18
