LORD, remember David

And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:3 - “Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house,
Or go up to the comfort of my bed;
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:4 - I will not give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:5 - Until I find a place for the LORD,
A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:6 - Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;
We found it in the fields of the woods.[fn]
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:7 - Let us go into His tabernacle;
Let us worship at His footstool.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:8 - Arise, O LORD, to Your resting place,
You and the ark of Your strength.

And let Your saints shout for joy.

Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:11 - The LORD has sworn in truth to David;
He will not turn from it:
“I will set upon your throne the fruit of your body.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:12 - If your sons will keep My covenant
And My testimony which I shall teach them,
Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore.”
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:13 - For the LORD has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His dwelling place:
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:14 - “This is My resting place forever;
Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:15 - I will abundantly bless her provision;
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:16 - I will also clothe her priests with salvation,
And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:17 - There I will make the horn of David grow;
I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.
Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 132:18 - His enemies I will clothe with shame,
But upon Himself His crown shall flourish.”
