New International Version

Psalm 132

Psalm 132

A song of ascents.

Lord, remember David
    and all his self-denial.

He swore an oath to the Lord,
    he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“I will not enter my house
    or go to my bed,
I will allow no sleep to my eyes
    or slumber to my eyelids,
till I find a place for the Lord,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

We heard it in Ephrathah,
    we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:[a]
“Let us go to his dwelling place,
    let us worship at his footstool, saying,
‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
    you and the ark of your might.
May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
    may your faithful people sing for joy.’”

10 For the sake of your servant David,
    do not reject your anointed one.

11 The Lord swore an oath to David,
    a sure oath he will not revoke:
“One of your own descendants
    I will place on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
    and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit
    on your throne for ever and ever.”

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion,
    he has desired it for his dwelling, saying,
14 “This is my resting place for ever and ever;
    here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it.
15 I will bless her with abundant provisions;
    her poor I will satisfy with food.
16 I will clothe her priests with salvation,
    and her faithful people will ever sing for joy.

17 “Here I will make a horn[b] grow for David
    and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
    but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

  1. Psalm 132:6 Or heard of it in Ephrathah, / we found it in the fields of Jearim. (See 1 Chron. 13:5,6) (And no quotation marks around verses 7-9)
  2. Psalm 132:17 Horn here symbolizes strong one, that is, king.

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。”
