132:001 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:
132:002 How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
132:003 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
132:004 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
132:005 Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
132:006 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
132:007 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
132:008 Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
132:009 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
132:010 For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
132:011 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.
132:012 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.
132:013 For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
132:014 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
132:015 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:016 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
132:017 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
132:018 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
