Psalms Chapter 132 - New International Version

1. Psalm 132 A song of ascents.

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

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

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

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

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

6. We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar [2] : [1]

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

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

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

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

11. 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--

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

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

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

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

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

17. "Here I will make a horn [3] grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one.

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