132:10 For the sake of your servant David. The climax of the psalm is an appeal to the Lord to bless the descendant of David who is ruling on the throne. God had promised David that his descendants would rule after him (2 Sam. 7:11–16). Although the line of David was interrupted, God’s promises were not thwarted. Jesus, David’s greater Son, fulfills the Davidic covenant, and so it is no surprise that the psalm was understood messianically in the early church (cf. Luke 1:32; Acts 2:30).
