Psalms - Chapter 132 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Song of Ascents. Lord, remember David And all his afflictions;
  • 2. How he swore to the Lord, And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
  • 3. "Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house, Or go up to the comfort of my bed;
  • 4. I will not give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids,
  • 5. Until I find a place for the Lord, A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."
  • 6. Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah; We found it in the fields of the woods. {cf2super [100]}
  • 7. Let us go into His tabernacle; Let us worship at His footstool.
  • 8. Arise, 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 shout for joy.
  • 10. For Your servant David's sake, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed.
  • 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.
  • 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."
  • 13. For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place:
  • 14. "This is My resting place forever; Here I will 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 I will make the horn of David grow; I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.
  • 18. His enemies I will clothe with shame, But upon Himself His crown shall flourish."
