Psalms 132
New Living Translation

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[1],

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[2]; 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.”
