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.”
