Psalm 132
King James 2000

A song of ascents.
The Dwelling Place For the LORD

1LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:

2How he swore unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;

3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

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

5Until I find out a place for the LORD, a habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

6Lo, we heard of it at Ephrathah: we found it in the fields of the woods.

7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

8Arise, O LORD, into your rest; you, and the ark of your strength.

9Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints shout for joy.

10For your servant David's sake turn not away the face of your anointed.

11The LORD has sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of your body will I set upon your throne.

12If your children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon your throne forevermore.

13For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation.

14This is my rest forever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.

18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
