Psalm 132
NASB 1977►► 
Prayer for the LORD’S Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

     1Remember, O LORD, on David’s behalf,
            All his affliction;

     2How he swore to the LORD,
            And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,

     3“Surely I will not enter my house,
            Nor lie on my bed;

     4I will not give sleep to my eyes,
            Or slumber to my eyelids;

     5Until I find a place for the LORD,
            A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

     6Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;
            We found it in the field of Jaar.

     7Let us go into His dwelling place;
            Let us worship at His footstool.

     8Arise, O LORD, to Thy resting place;
            Thou and the ark of Thy strength.

     9Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness;
            And let Thy godly ones sing for joy.

     10For the sake of David Thy servant,
            Do not turn away the face of Thine anointed.

     11The LORD has sworn to David,
            A truth from which He will not turn back;
            “Of 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 sit upon your throne forever.”

     13For the LORD has chosen Zion;
            He has desired it for His habitation.

     14“This is My resting place forever;
            Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.

     15“I will abundantly bless her provision;
            I will satisfy her needy with bread.

     16“Her priests also I will clothe with salvation;
            And her godly ones will sing aloud for joy.

     17“There I will cause the horn of David to spring forth;
            I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed.

     18“His enemies I will clothe with shame;
            But upon himself his crown shall shine.”
