Psalm 132

1 O LORD, remember David

 and all the hardships he endured,

 2 the oath he swore to the LORD,

 his vow to the Strong One of Jacob.

3 “I will not enter my house,

 nor go to the bed where I rest;

 4 I will give no sleep to my eyes,

 to my eyelids I will give no slumber,

 5 till I find a place for the LORD,

 a dwelling for the Strong One of Jacob.”

6 At Ephrata we heard of it;

 we found it in the plains of Yearim.

 7 “Let us go to the place of his dwelling;

 let us bow down at his footstool.”

8 Go up, LORD, to the place of your rest,

 you and the ark of your strength.

 9 Your priests shall be clothed with justice;

 your faithful shall ring out their joy.

 10 For the sake of David your servant,

 do not reject your anointed.

11 The LORD swore an oath to David;

 he will not go back on his word:

 “A son, the fruit of your body,

 will I set upon your throne.

12 If your sons hold fast to my covenant,

 and my laws that I have taught them,

 their sons, in turn, shall sit

 on your throne from age to age.”

13 For the LORD has chosen Sion;

 he has desired it for his dwelling:

 14 “This is my resting place from age to age;

 here have I chosen to dwell.

15 I will greatly bless her produce;

 I will fill her poor with bread.

 16 I will clothe her priests with salvation,

 and her faithful shall ring out their joy.

17 I will make a stock sprout up for David;

 I will prepare a lamp for my anointed.

 18 I will cover his enemies with shame,

 but on him my crown shall shine.”
