THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 132 ©
David’s carefulness about the bringing of the ark into Jerusalem, together with his prayer over it, and an account of the oath and promises, which God had made to David and His church, touching the everlasting Kingdom of Christ.
A1 Song of degrees.
LORD,23remember David, and all his afflictions:
How he sware unto the LORD, and 4vowed unto 5the mighty God of Jacob;
6Surelya I will not come into the tabernacle 7of my house, nor go up 8into my bed;
I will not give 9sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
Until I 10find out 11a place 12for the LORD, an 13habitation 14for the mighty God of Jacob.
Lo, we heard 15of it 16at Ephratah: 17we found it in the fields of 18the wood.
We will go into 19his tabernacles: we will worship 20at 21his footstool.
22Arise, O LORD, 23into thy rest; 24thou, and the ark of thy strength.
Let thy priests 25be clothed with righteousness; and let 26thy saints shout for joy.
27For thy servant David’s sake 28turn not away the face of thine 29anointed.
The LORD hath sworn in 30truth unto David; he will not turn from it; 31Of the fruit of thy body will 32I setb upon thy throne.
If thy children will keep 33my covenant and 34my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne 35for evermore.
For the LORD hath chosen 36Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
Thiscis my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I 37have desired it.
I will 38abundantly bless 39her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
I will also clothe herd priests 40with salvation: and 41her saints shall shout 42aloud for joy.
43Theree will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained 44a lamp for 45mine anointed.
His enemies will 46I clothe 47with shame: but upon himself 48shall his crown 49flourish.
