Psalm 132 New American Standard Bible

A Prayer for Blessing on the Sanctuary

132 Remember , O Lord , on David's behalf, All his affliction ; 2  How he swore to the Lord And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob , 3  "Surely I will not enter my house , Nor lie on my bed e ; 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 field of Jaar . 7  Let us go into His dwelling place ; Let us worship at His footstool e . 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 godly ones sing for joy . 10  For the sake of David Your servant , Do not turn away the face of Your anointed .

11  The Lord has sworn to David A truth from which He will not turn back : " Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne . 12  "If your sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I will teach them, Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forever ." 13  For the Lord has chosen Zion ; He has desired it for His habitation . 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 needy with bread . 16  "Her priests also I will clothe with salvation , And her godly ones will sing aloud for joy . 17  "There I will cause the horn of David to spring forth ; I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed . 18  "His enemies I will clothe with shame , But upon himself his crown shall shine ."
