Psalm 132

1  Lord, remember for David ♦︎
   all the hardships he endured;
2  How he swore an oath to the Lord ♦︎
   and vowed a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3  ‘I will not come within the shelter of my house, ♦︎
   nor climb up into my bed;
4  ‘I will not allow my eyes to sleep, ♦︎
   nor let my eyelids slumber,
5  ‘Until I find a place for the Lord, ♦︎
   a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.’
6  Now, we heard of the ark in Ephrathah ♦︎
   and found it in the fields of Ja-ar.
7  Let us enter his dwelling place ♦︎
   and fall low before his footstool.
8  Arise, O Lord, into your resting place, ♦︎
   you and the ark of your strength.
9  Let your priests be clothed with righteousness ♦︎
   and your faithful ones sing with joy.
10  For your servant David’s sake, ♦︎
   turn not away the face of your anointed.
11  The Lord has sworn an oath to David, ♦︎
   a promise from which he will not shrink:
12  ‘Of the fruit of your body ♦︎
   shall I set upon your throne.
13  ‘If your children keep my covenant
      and my testimonies that I shall teach them, ♦︎
   their children also shall sit upon your throne for evermore.’
14  For the Lord has chosen Zion for himself; ♦︎
   he has desired her for his habitation:
15  ‘This shall be my resting place for ever; ♦︎
   here will I dwell, for I have longed for her.
16  ‘I will abundantly bless her provision; ♦︎
   her poor will I satisfy with bread.
17  ‘I will clothe her priests with salvation, ♦︎
   and her faithful ones shall rejoice and sing.
18  ‘There will I make a horn to spring up for David; ♦︎
   I will keep a lantern burning for my anointed.
19  ‘As for his enemies, I will clothe them with shame; ♦︎
   but on him shall his crown be bright.’
