Psalms 132

PSALM 132.

A Song of degrees.

 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions: How he sware unto the  Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, Until I find out a place for the  Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
an habitation: Heb. habitations
Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. Arise, O  Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. Let thy priests 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 The  Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
body: Heb. belly
12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13 For the  Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14 This is my rest 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.
abundantly: or, surely
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 mine anointed.
lamp: or, candle
18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
