Psalm 132 King James Version

A Prayer for Blessing on the Sanctuary

132 A Song of degrees. 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, an habitation [1] 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 [2] 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 for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15  I will abundantly [3] 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 [4] for mine anointed. 18  His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
