Psalms Chapter 132 – David’s covenant — God’s promises to his people. (A Song of degrees.)

1 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions;


2 How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;


3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;


4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,


5 Until I find out a place for the Lord, a habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.


6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah; we found it in the fields of the wood.


7 We will go into his tabernacles, we will worship at his footstool.


8 Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.


9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.


10 For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.


11 The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.


12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.


13 For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.


14 This is my rest forever; here will I dwell; for I have desired it.


15 I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread.


16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation; and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.


17 There will I make the horn of David to bud; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.


18 His enemies will I clothe with shame; but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
