Psalms 132

Prayer for the  Lord’s Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

1 Remember, O  Lord, on David’s behalf,
All a  his affliction;
2How he swore to the  Lord
And vowed to b  the Mighty One of Jacob,
3Surely I will not
Lit come into the tabernacle of
enter d  my house,
Nor
Lit go up into the couch of
lie on my bed;
4I will not f  give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
5Until I find a g  place for the  Lord,
Lit Dwelling places
A dwelling place for i  the Mighty One of Jacob.”

6Behold, we heard of it in j  Ephrathah,
We found it in the k  field of
Or the wood
Jaar.
7Let us go into His
Lit dwelling places
,
n  dwelling place;
Let us o  worship at His p  footstool.
8 q  Arise, O  Lord, to Your r  resting place,
You and the ark of Your s  strength.
9Let Your priests be t  clothed with righteousness,
And let Your u  godly ones sing for joy.

10For the sake of David Your servant,
Do not turn away the face of Your v  anointed.
11The  Lord has w  sworn to David
A truth from which He will not turn back:
x  Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.
12If your sons will keep My covenant
And My testimony which I will teach them,
Their sons also shall y  sit upon your throne forever.”

13For the  Lord has z  chosen Zion;
He has aa  desired it for His habitation.
14This is My ab  resting place forever;
Here I will ac  dwell, for I have desired it.
15I will abundantly ad  bless her provision;
I will ae  satisfy her needy with bread.
16“Her af  priests also I will clothe with salvation,
And her ag  godly ones will sing aloud for joy.
17There I will cause the ah  horn of David to spring forth;
I have prepared a ai  lamp for Mine anointed.
18His enemies I will aj  clothe with shame,
But upon himself his ak  crown shall shine.”
