Tehillim (Psalms) 132
1O יהוה, remember Dawiḏ, All his afflictions;
2How he swore to יהוה, Vowed to the Mighty One of Ya‛aqoḇ:
3“Not to enter into my dwelling-house, Not to get into my bed,
4Not to give sleep to my eyes, Or slumber to my eyelids,”
5Until I find a place for יהוה, A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Ya‛aqoḇ.
6See, we heard of it in Ephrathah; We found it in the fields of the forest.
7Let us go into His dwelling places; Let us bow ourselves at His footstool.
8Arise, O יהוה, to Your place of rest, You and the ark of Your strength.
9Let Your priests put on righteousness, And Your lovingly-committed ones shout for joy.
10For the sake of Your servant Dawiḏ, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed One.
11יהוה has sworn in truth to Dawiḏ; He does not turn from it, “Of the fruit of your body I set upon your throne.
12If your sons guard My covenant And My witnesses that I teach them, Their sons shall sit upon your throne forever.
13For יהוה has chosen Tsiyon, He has desired it for His dwelling:
14“This is My place of rest forever; Here I dwell, for I have desired it.
15I greatly bless her provision, I satisfy her poor with bread.”
16“And I put deliverance on her priests, And her lovingly-committed ones sing for joy.
17There I make the horn of Dawiḏ grow; I shall set up a lamp for My Anointed One.”
18I put shame on his enemies, While on Him His diadem shall shine.
