Psalm 132

1 Lord, remember David and all his trouble:
    how he swore an oath to the Lord, and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob;
2 'I will not enter the shelter of my house:
    nor climb into the comfort of my bed;
3 'I will not give sleep to my eyes:
    or slumber to my eyelids,
4 'Till I find out a place for the ark of the Lord:
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.'
5 Lo, we heard of it at Ephrathah:
    we found it in the fields of Ja-ar.
6 Let us go to the place of his dwelling:
    let us fall upon our knees before his footstool.
7 Arise, O Lord, into your resting-place:
    you, and the ark of your might.
8 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness:
    and let your faithful ones shout for joy.
9 For the sake of David your servant:
    do not turn away the face of your anointed.
10 The Lord has sworn to David:
    an oath which he will not break;
11 'One who is the fruit of your body:
    I will set upon your throne.
12 'If your children will keep my covenant and the commands which I teach them:
    their children also shall sit upon your throne for ever.'
13 For the Lord has chosen Zion for himself:
    he has desired it for his habitation.
14 'This shall be my resting-place for ever:
    here will I dwell, for my delight is in her.
15 'I will bless her provisions with abundance:
    I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 'I will clothe her priests with salvation:
    and her faithful ones shall shout for joy.
17 'There will I make a horn to sprout for the family of David:
    I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
18 'As for his enemies, I will cover them with shame:
    but upon his head shall his crown be bright.'
