A Song of the Ascents. 132 Remember, O Jehovah, concerning David+All his humiliations;+ 2 How he swore to Jehovah,+How he vowed to the Powerful One+ of Jacob:+ 3 “I will not go into the tent of my house.+I will not go up on the divan of my grand lounge,+ 4 I will not give sleep to my eyes,+Nor slumber to my own beaming eyes,+ 5 Until I find a place for Jehovah,+A grand tabernacle* for the Powerful One of Jacob.”+ 6 Look! We have heard it in Ephʹra·thah,+We have found it in the fields of the forest.+ 7 Let us come into his grand tabernacle;+Let us bow down at his footstool.+ 8 Do arise, O Jehovah, to your resting-place,+You and the ark+ of your strength.+ 9 Let your priests themselves be clothed with righteousness,+And let your own loyal ones cry out joyfully.+ 10 On account of David your servant,+Do not turn back the face of your anointed one.*+ 11 Jehovah has sworn to David,+Truly he will not draw back from it:*+“Of the fruitage of your belly+I shall set on your throne.+ 12 If your sons will keep my covenant+And my reminders that I shall teach them,+Their sons also forever+Will sit upon your throne.”+ 13 For Jehovah has chosen Zion;+He has longed for it* as a dwelling for himself:+ 14 “This is my resting-place forever;+Here I shall dwell, for I have longed for it.+ 15 Its* provisions I shall bless without fail.+Its poor ones I shall satisfy with bread.*+ 16 And its priests I shall clothe with salvation;+And its loyal ones will without fail cry out joyfully. 17 There I shall cause the horn of David to grow.+I have set in order a lamp for my anointed one.*+ 18 His enemies I shall clothe with shame;+But upon him his diadem+ will flourish.”*+
