Psalms 132 (asv)

Psalms 132 (asv)

A Song of Ascents.

132:1Jehovah, remember for David

All his affliction;

132:2How he sware unto Jehovah,

And vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:

132:3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house,

Nor go up into my bed;

132:4I will not give sleep to mine eyes,

Or slumber to mine eyelids;

132:5Until I find out a place for Jehovah,

A tabernacle for the Mighty One of Jacob.

132:6Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah:

We found it in the field of the wood.

132:7We will go into his tabernacles;

We will worship at his footstool.

132:8Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place;

Thou, and the ark of thy strength.

132:9Let thy priest be clothed with righteousness;

And let thy saints shout for joy.

132:10For thy servant David's sake

Turn not away the face of thine anointed.

132:11Jehovah hath sworn unto David in truth;

He will not turn from it:

Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

132:12If thy children will keep my covenant

And my testimony that I shall teach them,

Their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.

132:13For Jehovah hath chosen Zion;

He hath desired it for his habitation.

132:14This is my resting-place for ever:

Here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

132:15I will abundantly bless her provision:

I will satisfy her poor with bread.

132:16Her priests also will I clothe with salvation;

And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

132:17There will I make the horn of David to bud:

I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

132:18His enemies will I clothe with shame;

But upon himself shall his crown flourish.
