Psalms 132

A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions: How he swore to the LORD, and vowed to 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 my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids, Until I find 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 thy anointed.

11 The LORD hath sworn in truth to 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 also shall 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 my anointed. {lamp: or, candle} 18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
