Psalms 132 - Prayer Tents
A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. 132Lord, remember David and all that he suffered. 2He made a solemn promise to the Lord. He vowed to the Mighty One of Israel, 3“I will not go home; I will not let myself rest. 4I will not let my eyes sleep nor close my eyelids in slumber 5until I find a place to build a house for the Lord, a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.” 6We heard that the Ark was in Ephrathah; then we found it in the distant countryside of Jaar. 7Let us go to the sanctuary of the Lord; let us worship at the footstool of his throne. 8Arise, O Lord, and enter your resting place, along with the Ark, the symbol of your power. 9May your priests be clothed in godliness; may your loyal servants sing for joy. 10For the sake of your servant David, do not reject the king you have anointed. 11The Lord swore an oath to David with a promise he will never take back. “I will place one of your descendants on your throne. 12If your descendants obey the terms of my covenant and the laws that I teach them, then your royal line will continue forever and ever.” 13For the Lord has chosen Jerusalem; he has desired it for his home. 14“This is my resting place forever,” he said. “I will live here, for this is the home I desired. 15I will bless this city and make it prosperous; I will satisfy its poor with food. 16I will clothe its priests with godliness; its faithful servants will sing for joy. 17Here I will increase the power of David; my anointed one will be a light for my people. 18I will clothe his enemies with shame, but he will be a glorious king.”
