Psalms 132 (asv)
A Song of Ascents.
All his affliction;
132:2How he sware unto Jehovah,
And vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:
Nor go up into my bed;
132:4I will not give sleep to mine eyes,
Or slumber to mine eyelids;
132:6Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah:
We found it in the field of the wood.
132:7We will go into his tabernacles;
We will worship at his footstool.
132:8Arise, O Jehovah, into thy resting-place;
132:9Let thy priest be clothed with righteousness;
And let thy saints shout for joy.
132:10For thy servant David's sake
Turn not away the face of thine anointed.
He will not turn from it:
Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
132:12If thy children will keep my covenant
And my testimony that I shall teach them,
Their children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore.
He hath desired it for his habitation.
132:14This is my resting-place for ever:
Here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
132:15I will abundantly bless her provision:
And her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
132:17There will I make the horn of David to bud:
I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
132:18His enemies will I clothe with shame;
But upon himself shall his crown flourish.
