Psalm 132
Douay-Rheims Bible

Remember David and All his Affliction

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.
