Psalm 132

Prayer for the LORD'S Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

1 Remember, O LORD, on David's behalf, All 1his affliction;
2 How he swore to the LORD And vowed to 2the Mighty One of Jacob,
3 "Surely I will not enter 3my house, Nor lie on my bed *;
4 I will not 4give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids,
5 Until I find a 5place for the LORD, A dwelling place for 6the Mighty One of Jacob."
6 Behold, we heard of it in 7Ephrathah, We found it in the 8field of Jaar.
7 Let us go into His 9dwelling place; Let us 10worship at His 11footstool *.
8 12Arise, O LORD, to Your 13resting place, You and the ark of Your 14strength.
9 Let Your priests be 15clothed with righteousness, And let Your 16godly ones sing for joy.
10 For the sake of David Your servant, Do not turn away the face of Your 17anointed.
11 The LORD has 18sworn to David A truth from which He will not turn back: "19Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.
12 "If your sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I will teach them, Their sons also shall 20sit upon your throne forever."
13 For the LORD has 21chosen Zion; He has 22desired it for His habitation.
14 "This is My 23resting place forever; Here I will 24dwell, for I have desired it.
15 "I will abundantly 25bless her provision; I will 26satisfy her needy with bread.
16 "Her 27priests also I will clothe with salvation, And her 28godly ones will sing aloud for joy.
17 "There I will cause the 29horn of David to spring forth; I have prepared a 30lamp for Mine anointed.
18 "His enemies I will 31clothe with shame, But upon himself his 32crown shall shine."
