132:2 how he swore to the LORD and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
132:3 "I will not enter my house or get into my bed;
132:4 I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids,
132:5 until I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."
132:6 We heard of it in Ephrathah; we found it in the fields of Jaar.
132:7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool."
132:8 Rise up, O LORD, and go to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.
132:9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let your faithful shout for joy.
132:10 For your servant David's sake do not turn away the face of your anointed one.
132:11 The LORD swore to David a sure oath from which he will not turn back: "One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne.
132:12 If your sons keep my covenant and my decrees that I shall teach them, their sons also, forevermore, shall sit on your throne."
132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation:
132:14 "This is my resting place forever; here I will reside, for I have desired it.
132:15 I will abundantly bless its provisions; I will satisfy its poor with bread.
132:16 Its priests I will clothe with salvation, and its faithful will shout for joy.
132:17 There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.
132:18 His enemies I will clothe with disgrace, but on him, his crown will gleam."
