Psalm 132

1 (131-1) <A gradual canticle.> O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness.
2 (131-2) How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob:
3 (131-3) If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie:
4 (131-4) If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,
5 (131-5) Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
6 (131-6) Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood.
7 (131-7) We will go into his tabernacle: we will adore in the place where his feet stood.
8 (131-8) Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified.
9 (131-9) Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice.
10 (131-10) For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed.
11 (131-11) The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne.
12 (131-12) If thy children will keep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne.
13 (131-13) For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling.
14 (131-14) This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it.
15 (131-15) Blessing I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 (131-16) I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy.
17 (131-17) There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
18 (131-18) His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him shall my sanctification flourish.
