|Psalms 132 |
1 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2 How he swore to the LORD, and vowed to the mighty God of Jacob:
3 Surely I will not come into the rooms of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,
5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the Mighty God of Jacob.
6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah. We found it in the fields of the wood.
7 We will go into his tabernacle. We will worship at his footstool.
8 Arise, O LORD, into your rest; you, and the ark of your strength.
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints shout for joy.
10 For your servant David's sake, do not turn away the face of your anointed.
11 The LORD has sworn in truth to David; he will not turn back from it. "From the fruit of your body will I set one upon your throne.
12 If your children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon your throne forevermore.
13 For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation.
14 This is my rest forever. 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 ordained a lamp for my anointed.
18 His enemies I will clothe with shame, but his crown shall flourish upon him."
