Amplified Bible

Psalm 132

Prayer for the Lord’s Blessing Upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1O Lord, remember on David’s behalf
All his hardship and affliction;

How he swore to the Lord
And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:

“I absolutely will not enter my house,
Nor get into my bed—

I certainly will not permit my eyes to sleep
Nor my eyelids to slumber,

Until I find a place for the Lord,
A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob (Israel).”


Behold, we heard of it at Ephrathah;
We found it in the field of Jaar.

Let us go into His tabernacle;
Let us worship at His footstool.

Arise, O Lord, to Your resting place,
You and the ark [the symbol] of Your strength.

Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness (right living),
And let Your godly ones shout for joy.

10 
For the sake of Your servant David,
Do not turn away the face of Your anointed.
11 
The Lord swore to David
A truth from which He will not turn back:
“One of your [b]descendants I will set upon your throne.
12 
“If your children will keep My covenant
And My testimony which I will teach them,
Their children also shall sit upon your throne forever.”

13 
For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His dwelling place:
14 
“This is My resting place forever” [says the Lord];
“Here will I dwell, for I have desired it.
15 
“I will abundantly bless her provisions;
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 
“Her priests also I will clothe with salvation,
And her godly ones will shout aloud for joy.
17 
“There I will make the horn (strength) of David grow;
I have prepared a lamp for My anointed [fulfilling the promises].
18 
“His enemies I will clothe with shame,
But upon himself shall his crown shine.”

King James Version

Psalm 132

1Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11 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.

12 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.

13 For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

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

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

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

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

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