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.”

詩篇 132

求上帝賜福聖殿

上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1耶和華啊,
求你顧念大衛和他所受的一切苦難。
他曾向你起誓,
向雅各的大能者許願說:
3-5 「我不為耶和華找到居所,
不為雅各的大能者找到安居之處,
必不進家門,
不沾床,不睡覺,不打盹。」

我們在以法他聽到約櫃的消息,
在基列·耶琳找到了它。
讓我們進入耶和華的居所,
在祂腳前俯伏敬拜。

耶和華啊,
求你起來和你大能的約櫃一同進入聖所。
願你的祭司身披公義,
願你忠心的子民高聲歡唱。
10 為了你僕人大衛的緣故,
求你不要棄絕你所膏立的人。

11 耶和華曾向大衛起了永不廢棄的誓說:
「我必使你的後代繼承你的王位。
12 你的後代若守我的約,
遵行我教導他們的法度,
他們的子孫必永遠坐在你的寶座上。」
13 因為耶和華已經揀選了錫安,
願意將錫安作為祂的居所。
14 祂說:「這是我永遠的居所;
我要住在這裡,
因為我喜愛這地方。
15 我要使她糧食充足,
使她裡面的窮人飲食無憂。
16 我要用救恩作她祭司的衣裳,
城裡忠心的子民必高聲歡唱。
17 我必使大衛的後裔在那裡做王,
我必為我所膏立的預備明燈。
18 我必使他的仇敵滿面羞愧,
但他頭上的王冠必光芒四射。」
