The Message

Psalm 132

A Pilgrim Song

11-5 O God, remember David,
    remember all his troubles!
And remember how he promised God,
    made a vow to the Strong God of Jacob,
“I’m not going home,
    and I’m not going to bed,
I’m not going to sleep,
    not even take time to rest,
Until I find a home for God,
    a house for the Strong God of Jacob.”

6-7 Remember how we got the news in Ephrathah,
    learned all about it at Jaar Meadows?
We shouted, “Let’s go to the shrine dedication!
    Let’s worship at God’s own footstool!”

8-10 Up, God, enjoy your new place of quiet repose,
    you and your mighty covenant ark;
Get your priests all dressed up in justice;
    prompt your worshipers to sing this prayer:
“Honor your servant David;
    don’t disdain your anointed one.”

11-18 God gave David his word,
    he won’t back out on this promise:
“One of your sons
    I will set on your throne;
If your sons stay true to my Covenant
    and learn to live the way I teach them,
Their sons will continue the line—
    always a son to sit on your throne.
Yes—I, God, chose Zion,
    the place I wanted for my shrine;
This will always be my home;
    this is what I want, and I’m here for good.
I’ll shower blessings on the pilgrims who come here,
    and give supper to those who arrive hungry;
I’ll dress my priests in salvation clothes;
    the holy people will sing their hearts out!
Oh, I’ll make the place radiant for David!
    I’ll fill it with light for my anointed!
I’ll dress his enemies in dirty rags,
    but I’ll make his crown sparkle with splendor.”

诗篇 132

求上帝赐福圣殿

上圣殿朝圣之诗。

1耶和华啊,
求你顾念大卫和他所受的一切苦难。
他曾向你起誓,
向雅各的大能者许愿说:
3-5 “我不为耶和华找到居所,
不为雅各的大能者找到安居之处,
必不进家门,
不沾床,不睡觉,不打盹。”

我们在以法他听到约柜的消息,
在基列·耶琳找到了它。
让我们进入耶和华的居所,
在祂脚前俯伏敬拜。

耶和华啊,
求你起来和你大能的约柜一同进入圣所。
愿你的祭司身披公义,
愿你忠心的子民高声欢唱。
10 为了你仆人大卫的缘故,
求你不要弃绝你所膏立的人。

11 耶和华曾向大卫起了永不废弃的誓说:
“我必使你的后代继承你的王位。
12 你的后代若守我的约,
遵行我教导他们的法度,
他们的子孙必永远坐在你的宝座上。”
13 因为耶和华已经拣选了锡安,
愿意将锡安作为祂的居所。
14 祂说:“这是我永远的居所;
我要住在这里,
因为我喜爱这地方。
15 我要使她粮食充足,
使她里面的穷人饮食无忧。
16 我要用救恩作她祭司的衣裳,
城里忠心的子民必高声欢唱。
17 我必使大卫的后裔在那里做王,
我必为我所膏立的预备明灯。
18 我必使他的仇敌满面羞愧,
但他头上的王冠必光芒四射。”
