Psalms 132

A Song of Ascents. Jehovah, remember for David All his affliction; How he sware unto Jehovah, And vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob: Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, Nor go up into my bed;
1) Heb tent 2) Heb the couch of my bed
I will not give sleep to mine eyes, Or slumber to mine eyelids; Until I find out a place for Jehovah, A tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob.
1) Heb Tabernacles
Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah: We found it in the field of the wood.
1) Or Ephraim 2) Or Jaar ; See 1 Co 13:5
We will go into his tabernacles; We will worship at his footstool. Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place; Thou, and the ark of thy strength. Let thy priest be clothed with righteousness; And let thy saints shout for joy. 10 For thy servant David’s sake Turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11 Jehovah hath sworn unto David in truth; He will not turn from it: Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. 12 If thy children will keep my covenant And my testimony that I shall teach them, Their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13 For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for his habitation. 14 This is my resting-place for ever: Here will I dwell; For I have desired it. 15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
1) Or surely
16 Her priests also will I clothe 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 mine anointed.
1) Or a horn to spring forth unto David 2) Or prepared
18 His enemies will I clothe with shame; But upon himself shall his crown flourish.
