Psalms Chapter 132 (Index)

001  A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:

002  How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;

003  Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

004  I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

005  Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

006  Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

007  We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

008  Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.

009  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

010  For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

011  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

012  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.

013  For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

014  This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

015  I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

016  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

017  There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

018  His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
