A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. 132 1Lord, remember David and all that he suffered. 2He made a solemn promise to the Lord. He vowed to the Mighty One of Israel,[P] 3“I will not go home; I will not let myself rest. 4I will not let my eyes sleep nor close my eyelids in slumber 5until I find a place to build a house for the Lord, a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.”   6We heard that the Ark was in Ephrathah; then we found it in the distant countryside of Jaar. 7Let us go to the sanctuary of the Lord; let us worship at the footstool of His throne. 8Arise, O Lord, and enter Your resting place, along with the Ark, the symbol of Your power. 9May Your priests be clothed in godliness; may Your loyal servants sing for joy. 10For the sake of Your servant David, do not reject the king You have anointed. 11The Lord swore an oath to David with a promise He will never take back: “I will place one of your descendants on your throne. 12If your descendants obey the terms of My covenant and the laws that I teach them, then your royal line will continue forever and ever.”   13For the Lord has chosen Jerusalem[Q]; He has desired it for His home. 14“This is My resting place forever,” He said. “I will live here, for this is the home I desired. 15I will bless this city and make it prosperous; I will satisfy its poor with food. 16I will clothe its priests with godliness; its faithful servants will sing for joy. 17Here I will increase the power of David; My anointed one will be a light for My people. 18I will clothe his enemies with shame, but he will be a glorious king.”
