Psalm 132 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

132:8-10pp -- 2Ch 6:41-42

A song of ascents.

1 O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured.1 2 He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:2 3 "I will not enter my house3 or go to my bed-- 4 I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids, 5 till I find a place4 for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob." 6 We heard it in Ephrathah,5 we came upon it in the fields of Jaara:b6 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place;7 let us worship at his footstool8-- 8 arise, O LORD,9 and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. 9 May your priests be clothed with righteousness;10 may your saints11 sing for joy." 10 For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one. 11 The LORD swore an oath to David,12 a sure oath that he will not revoke: "One of your own descendants13 I will place on your throne-- 12 if your sons keep my covenant14 and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne15 for ever and ever." 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion,16 he has desired it for his dwelling:17 14 "This is my resting place for ever and ever;18 here I will sit enthroned,19 for I have desired it-- 15 I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food.20 16 I will clothe her priests21 with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy.22 17 "Here I will make a hornc grow23 for David and set up a lamp24 for my anointed one.25 18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,26 but the crown on his head27 will be resplendent."
