Chapter 132

1

 

 A Song of the going up.
Lord, give thought to David, and to all his troubles; 

 

 


2

 

 How he made an oath to the Lord, and gave his word to the great God of Jacob, saying, 

 

 


3

 

 Truly, I will not come into my house, or go to my bed, 

 

 


4

 

 I will not give sleep to my eyes, or rest to my eyeballs, 

 

 


5

 

 Till I have got a place for the Lord, a resting-place for the great God of Jacob. 

 

 


6

 

 We had news of it at Ephrathah: we came to it in the fields of the wood. 

 

 


7

 

 Let us go into his tent; let us give worship at his feet. 

 

 


8

 

 Come back, O Lord, to your resting-place; you and the ark of your strength. 

 

 


9

 

 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let your saints give cries of joy. 

 

 


10

 

 Because of your servant David, do not give up your king. 

 

 


11

 

 The Lord gave a true oath to David, which he will not take back, saying, I will give your kingdom to the fruit of your body. 

 

 


12

 

 If your children keep my word, and the teachings which I will give them, their children will be rulers of your kingdom for ever. 

 

 


13

 

 For the Lord's heart is on Zion, desiring it for his resting-place. 

 

 


14

 

 This is my rest for ever: here will I ever be; for this is my desire. 

 

 


15

 

 My blessing will be on her food; and her poor will be full of bread. 

 

 


16

 

 Her priests will be clothed with salvation; and her saints will give cries of joy. 

 

 


17

 

 There I will make the horn of David fertile: I have made ready a light for my king. 

 

 


18

 

 His haters will be clothed with shame; but I will make his crown shining.
