Psalm 132

A pilgrimage song.

1 LORD, remember David— all the ways he suffered 2 and how he swore to the LORD, how he promised the strong one of Jacob: 3 "I won't enter my house, won't get into my bed. 4 I won't let my eyes close, won't let my eyelids sleep, 5 until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling place for the strong one of Jacob." 6 Yes, we heard about it in Ephrathah; we found ita in the fields of Jaar. 7 Let's enter God's dwelling place; let's worship at the place God rests his feet! 8 Get up, LORD, go to your residence— you and your powerful covenant chest! 9 Let your priests be dressed in righteousness; let your faithful shout out with joy! 10 And for the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one. 11 The LORD swore to David a true promise that God won't take back: "I will put one of your own children on your throne. 12 And if your children keep my covenant and the laws that I will teach them, then their children too will rule on your throne forever." 13 Because the LORD chose Zion; he wanted it for his home. 14 "This is my residence forever. I will live here because I wanted it for myself.b 15 I will most certainly bless its food supply; I will fill its needy full of food! 16 I will dress its priests in salvation, and its faithful will shout out loud with joy! 17 It is there that I will make David's strength thrive.c I will prepare a lamp for my anointed one there. 18 I will dress his enemies in shame, but the crown he wears will shine."
