Chapter 132

1


 

  Jehovah, remember for David All his affliction;  

 

 


2


 

  How he sware unto Jehovah, And vowed unto the Mighty One 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 Jehovah, A tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob.  

 

 


6


 

  Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah: We found it in the field of the wood.  

 

 


7


 

  We will go into his tabernacles; We will worship at his footstool.  

 

 


8


 

  Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place; Thou, and the ark of thy strength.  

 

 


9


 

  Let thy priest 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


 

  Jehovah hath sworn unto David in truth; 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 also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.  

 

 


13


 

  For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for his habitation.  

 

 


14


 

  This is my resting-place 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


 

  Her priests also will I clothe 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. Psalm 133 A Song of Ascents; of David.
