Psalm 132
O LORD, remember David, *
and all the hardships he endured,
How he swore to the LORD *
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not come into my house *
nor climb into the comfort of my bed,
I will give no sleep to my eyes *
or slumber to my eyelids,
Until I find a place for the LORD, *
a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah; *
we found it in the fields of Jaar.
“Let us go to his dwelling place; *
let us worship at his footstool!”
 
Arise, O LORD, to your resting place, *
you and the ark of your strength.
Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, *
and let your saints shout for joy.
For the sake of your servant David, *
do not turn away the face of your anointed.
The LORD has sworn to David
a sure oath from which he will not turn back: *
“Your own son I will set on your throne, the fruit of your body.
If your children keep my covenant;
my testimonies that I shall teach them, *
their sons too shall sit on your throne forever.”
For the LORD has chosen Zion; *
he has desired it for his dwelling place:
“This is my resting place forever; *
here I will dwell, for I have desired her.
I will abundantly bless her provisions; *
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
Her priests I will clothe with salvation, *
and her saints will sing aloud for joy.
There I will make the horn of David flourish; *
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
His enemies I will clothe with shame, *
but on him, himself, his crown will shine.”
