Psalm 132

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