Psalm 132
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Yahweh Has Chosen Zion

A Song of Ascents.

1Remember, O Yahweh, on David’s behalf,

All his affliction;

2How he swore to Yahweh

And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,

3“Surely I will not come into [†]my house,

Nor [†]lie in the [†]comfort of my bed;

4I will not give sleep to my eyes

Or slumber to my eyelids,

5Until I find a place for Yahweh,

[†]A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

6Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah,

We found it in the fields of [†]Jaar.

7Let us come into His [†]dwelling place;

Let us worship at the footstool of His feet.

8Arise, O Yahweh, to Your resting place,

You and the ark of Your strength.

9Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness,

And let Your holy ones sing for joy.

10For the sake of David Your servant,

Do not turn away the face of Your anointed.

11Yahweh 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.

12If your sons keep My covenant

And My testimony which I will teach them,

Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forever.”

13For Yahweh has chosen Zion;

He has desired it for His habitation.

14“This is My resting place forever;

Here I will inhabit, for I have desired it.

15I will abundantly bless her provision;

I will satisfy her needy with bread.

16Her priests also I will clothe with salvation,

And her holy ones will sing loudly for joy.

17There I will cause the horn of David to spring up;

I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed.

18His enemies I will clothe with shame,

But upon him, his crown shall blossom.”

3 Lit tabernacle of my house
3 Lit go up into
3 Lit couch
5 Lit Dwelling places
6 Or the wood
7 Lit dwelling places
11 Or stomach; lit womb
