New International Reader's Version

Psalm 132

Psalm 132

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

Lord, remember David
    and all the times he didn’t do what he wanted.

Lord, he made a promise.
    Mighty One of Jacob, he made a promise to you.
He said, “I won’t enter my house
    or go to bed.
I won’t let my eyes sleep.
    I won’t close my eyelids
until I find a place for the Lord.
    I want to build a house for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

Here are the words we heard in Ephrathah.
    We heard them again in the fields of Kiriath Jearim.
“Let us go to the Lord’s house.
    Let us worship at his feet. Let us say,
Lord, rise up and come to your resting place.
    Come in together with the ark. It’s the sign of your power.
May your priests put on godliness as if it were their clothes.
    May your faithful people sing for joy.’ ”

10 In honor of your servant David,
    don’t turn your back on your anointed king.

11 The Lord made a promise to David.
    It is a firm promise that he will never break.
He said, “After you die,
    I will place one of your own sons on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
    and the laws I teach them,
then their sons will sit
    on your throne for ever and ever.”

13 The Lord has chosen Zion.
    That’s the place where he wants to live.
14 He has said, “This will be my resting place for ever and ever.
    Here I will sit on my throne, because that’s what I want.
15 I will greatly bless Zion with everything it needs.
    I will give plenty of food to the poor people living there.
16 I will put salvation on its priests as if it were their clothes.
    God’s faithful people will always sing for joy.

17 “Here in Jerusalem I will raise up a mighty king from the family of David.
    I will set up the lamp of David’s kingdom for my anointed king.
    Its flame will burn brightly forever.
18 I will put shame on his enemies as if it were their clothes.
    But he will wear on his head a shining crown.”

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。”
