Psalm 132 (131)
3Do not forget the descendants of your servant David.
1 Remember David, O Lord, and all his readiness, 2 how he swore an oath to the Lord, to the Mighty One of Jacob.
3 “I will not enter my house nor get into my bed,
4 I will give no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids, 5 until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6 Then came the news, “The Ark is in Ephrathah, we found it in the fields of Jaar.”
7 Let us go to where he dwells and worship at his footstool!
8 Arise, O Lord, and come to your rest, you and the ark of your might.
9 May your priests be arrayed in glorious mantle; may your faithful ones shout in gladness.
10 For the sake of your servant, David, do not turn away the face of your anointed.
11 The Lord swore to David a promise, and he will remain true to it: “I will keep your descendance on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant and the decrees I have taught them, their sons, too, will sit forever upon your throne.”
13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his dwelling:
14 “This is my resting place forever; this I prefer, here will I dwell.
15 I will bless its fruits, its bread, and the poor will be satisfied.
16 I will clothe its priests with glory and its faithful will sing in gladness.
17 From here a savior shall come forth, a son of David; here shall shine forever the lamp of my anointed.
18 In shame will I clothe his enemies, but upon his head a crown shall shine.”
