Psalm 132 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Lord, do not forget David and all the hardships he endured. 2 Remember, Lord, what he promised, the vow he made to you, the Mighty God of Jacob: 3 "I will not go home or go to bed; 4 I will not rest or sleep, 5 until I provide a place for the Lord, a home for the Mighty God of Jacob." 6 In Bethlehem we heard about the Covenant Box, 1 and we found it in the fields of Jearim. 7 We said, "Let us go to the Lord's house; let us worship before his throne." 8 Come to the Temple, Lord, with the Covenant Box, the symbol of your power, and stay here forever. 9 May your priests do always what is right; may your people shout for joy! 10 You made a promise to your servant David; do not reject your chosen king, Lord. 11 You made a solemn promise to David - 2 a promise you will not take back: "I will make one of your sons king, and he will rule after you. 12 If your sons are true to my covenant and to the commands I give them, their sons, also, will succeed you for all time as kings." 13 The Lord has chosen Zion; he wants to make it his home: 14 "This is where I will live forever; this is where I want to rule. 15 I will richly provide Zion with all she needs; I will satisfy her poor with food. 16 I will bless her priests in all they do, and her people will sing and shout for joy. 17 Here I will make one of David's descendants a great king; 3 here I will preserve the rule of my chosen king. 18 I will cover his enemies with shame, but his kingdom will prosper and flourish."
