Chapter 132

1


 

  A Song of the going up.
Lord, give thought to David, and to all his troubles;  

 

 


2


 

  How he made an oath to the Lord, and gave his word to the great God of Jacob, saying,  

 

 


3


 

  Truly, I will not come into my house, or go to my bed,  

 

 


4


 

  I will not give sleep to my eyes, or rest to my eyeballs,  

 

 


5


 

  Till I have got a place for the Lord, a resting-place for the great God of Jacob.  

 

 


6


 

  We had news of it at Ephrathah: we came to it in the fields of the wood.  

 

 


7


 

  Let us go into his tent; let us give worship at his feet.  

 

 


8


 

  Come back, O Lord, to your resting-place; you and the ark of your strength.  

 

 


9


 

  Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints give cries of joy.  

 

 


10


 

  Because of your servant David, do not give up your king.  

 

 


11


 

  The Lord gave a true oath to David, which he will not take back, saying, I will give your kingdom to the fruit of your body.  

 

 


12


 

  If your children keep my word, and the teachings which I will give them, their children will be rulers of your kingdom for ever.  

 

 


13


 

  For the Lord's heart is on Zion, desiring it for his resting-place.  

 

 


14


 

  This is my rest for ever: here will I ever be; for this is my desire.  

 

 


15


 

  My blessing will be on her food; and her poor will be full of bread.  

 

 


16


 

  Her priests will be clothed with salvation; and her saints will give cries of joy.  

 

 


17


 

  There I will make the horn of David fertile: I have made ready a light for my king.  

 

 


18


 

  His haters will be clothed with shame; but I will make his crown shining.
