Psalm 132

The LORD Has Chosen Zion

A song of ascents.

1O LORD, remember on behalf of David

all the hardships he endured,

2how he swore an oath to the LORD,

and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:

3“I will not enter my house

or get into 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 for the Mighty One of Jacob.a

6We heard that the ark was in Ephrathah;b

we found it in the fields of Jaar.

7Let us go to His dwelling place;

let us worship at His footstool.

8Arise, O LORD, to Your resting place,

You and the ark of Your strength.

9May Your priests be clothed with righteousness,

and Your saints shout for joy.

10For the sake of Your servant David,

do not reject Your anointed one.

11The LORD swore an oath to David,

a promise He will not revoke:

“One of your descendants

I will place on your throne.c

12If your sons keep My covenant

and the testimony I will teach them,

then their sons will also sit on your throne

forever and ever.”

13For the LORD has chosen Zion;

He has desired it for His home:

14“This is My resting place forever and ever;

here I will dwell, for I have desired this home.

15I will bless her with abundant provisions;

I will satisfy her poor with bread.

16I will clothe her priests with salvation,

and her saints will sing out in joy.

17There I will make a horn grow for David;

I have prepared a lamp for My anointed one.

18I will clothe his enemies with shame,

but the crown upon him will gleam.”
