Psalm 132

David and Zion Chosen

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David

and all the hardships he endured,a

2and how he swore an oath to the Lord,

making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:a

3“I will not enter my house

or get into my bed,

4I will not allow my eyes to sleep

or my eyelids to slumbera

5until I find a place for the Lord,

a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”a

6We heard of the ark in Ephrathah;a a

we found it in the fields of Jaar.B b

7Let’s go to his dwelling place;

let’s worship at his footstool.a

8Rise up, Lord, come to your resting place,

you and your powerful ark.a

9May your priests be clothed with righteousness,

and may your faithful people shout for joy.a

10For the sake of your servant David,

do not reject your anointed one.a a

11The Lord swore an oath to David,

a promise he will not abandon:

“I will set one of your offspringA

on your throne.a

12If your sons keep my covenant

and my decrees that I will teach them,

their sons will also sit on your throne forever.”a

13For the Lord has chosen Zion;

he has desired it for his home:a

14“This is my resting place forever;

I will make my home here

because I have desired it.a

15I will abundantly bless its food;

I will satisfy its needy with bread.a

16I will clothe its priests with salvation,

and its faithful people will shout for joy.a

17There I will make a horn grow for David;a

I have prepared a lampA for my anointed one.b

18I will clothe his enemies with shame,a

but the crown he wearsA will be glorious.”b
