PSALMS - Chapter 132

1 - Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:
2 - How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
3 - Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
4 - I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
5 - Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
6 - Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
7 - We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
8 - Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
9 - 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.
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.
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.
18 - His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
