Psalms 132
Psalm 132
David and Zion Chosen
A song of ascents.
1 Lord, remember David
and all the hardships he endured,#2Sm 16:12
2and how he swore an oath to the Lord,
making a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:#Gn 49:24; Is 49:26; 60:16
3“I will not enter my house
or get into my bed,
4I will not allow my eyes to sleep
or my eyelids to slumber#Pr 6:4
5until I find a place for the Lord,
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”#1Ch 22:7; Ac 7:46
6We heard of the ark in Ephrathah;#132:6 = Bethlehem#Gn 35:19; Ru 4:11; 1Sm 17:12; Mc 5:2
we found it in the fields of Jaar.#132:6 = Kiriath-jearim#1Sm 7:1
7Let us go to his dwelling place;
let us worship at his footstool.#1Ch 28:2; Ps 99:5
8Rise up, Lord, come to your resting place,
you and your powerful ark.#2Ch 6:41; Ps 68:1; 78:61
9May your priests be clothed with righteousness,
and may your faithful people shout for joy.#Jb 29:14; Ps 149:5
10For the sake of your servant David,
do not reject your anointed one.#132:10 = the king#2Ch 6:42
11The Lord swore an oath to David,
a promise he will not abandon:
“I will set one of your offspring#132:11 Lit set the fruit of your belly
on your throne.#2Sm 7:12-16; Ps 89:3; Ac 2:30
12If your sons keep my covenant
and my decrees that I will teach them,
their sons will also sit on your throne forever.”#1Kg 8:25; Lk 1:32
13For the Lord has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his home:#Ps 68:16; 78:68
14“This is my resting place forever;
I will make my home here
because I have desired it.#Mt 23:21
15I will abundantly bless its food;
I will satisfy its needy with bread.#Ps 107:9; 147:14
16I will clothe its priests with salvation,
and its faithful people will shout for joy.#2Ch 6:41
17There I will make a horn grow for David;#2Sm 23:5; Lk 1:69
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.#1Kg 11:36
18I will clothe his enemies with shame,#Jb 8:22
but the crown he wears#132:18 Lit but on him his crown will be glorious.”#Ps 21:3
