Psalm 131

Song of Quiet Trust

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1Lord, my heart is not lifted up,
   my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
   too great and too marvellous for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
   like a weaned child with its mother;
   my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.*


3 O Israel, hope in the Lord
   from this time on and for evermore.

Psalm 132

The Eternal Dwelling of God in Zion

A Song of Ascents.
1Lord, remember in David’s favour
   all the hardships he endured;
2 how he swore to the Lord
   and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
3 ‘I will not enter my house
   or get into my bed;
4 I will not give sleep to my eyes
   or slumber to my eyelids,
5 until I find a place for the Lord,
   a dwelling-place for the Mighty One of Jacob.’


6 We heard of it in Ephrathah;
   we found it in the fields of Jaar.
7 ‘Let us go to his dwelling-place;
   let us worship at his footstool.’


8 Rise up, O Lord, and go to your resting-place,
   you and the ark of your might.
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,
   and let your faithful shout for joy.
10 For your servant David’s sake
   do not turn away the face of your anointed one.


11 The Lord swore to David a sure oath
   from which he will not turn back:
‘One of the sons of your body
   I will set on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
   and my decrees that I shall teach them,
their sons also, for evermore,
   shall sit on your throne.’


13 For the Lord has chosen Zion;
   he has desired it for his habitation:
14 ‘This is my resting-place for ever;
   here I will reside, for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless its provisions;
   I will satisfy its poor with bread.
16 Its priests I will clothe with salvation,
   and its faithful will shout for joy.
17 There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David;
   I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.
18 His enemies I will clothe with disgrace,
   but on him, his crown will gleam.’

Psalm 134

Praise in the Night

A Song of Ascents.
1 Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,
   who stand by night in the house of the Lord!
2 Lift up your hands to the holy place,
   and bless the Lord.


3 May the Lord, maker of heaven and earth,
   bless you from Zion.

Psalm 135

Praise for God’s Goodness and Might


1 Praise the Lord!
   Praise the name of the Lord;
   give praise, O servants of the Lord,
2 you that stand in the house of the Lord,
   in the courts of the house of our God.
3 Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
   sing to his name, for he is gracious.
4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself,
   Israel as his own possession.


5 For I know that the Lord is great;
   our Lord is above all gods.
6 Whatever the Lord pleases he does,
   in heaven and on earth,
   in the seas and all deeps.
7 He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth;
   he makes lightnings for the rain
   and brings out the wind from his storehouses.


8 He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
   both human beings and animals;
9 he sent signs and wonders
   into your midst, O Egypt,
   against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10 He struck down many nations
   and killed mighty kings—
11 Sihon, king of the Amorites,
   and Og, king of Bashan,
   and all the kingdoms of Canaan—
12 and gave their land as a heritage,
   a heritage to his people Israel.


13 Your name, O Lord, endures for ever,
   your renown, O Lord, throughout all ages.
14 For the Lord will vindicate his people,
   and have compassion on his servants.


15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
   the work of human hands.
16 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
   they have eyes, but they do not see;
17 they have ears, but they do not hear,
   and there is no breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them
   and all who trust them
   shall become like them.


19 O house of Israel, bless the Lord!
   O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord!
   You that fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21 Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
   he who resides in Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!
