Prayer for the Lord’s Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

132 Remember, O Lord, on David’s behalf,
All (A)his affliction;
How he swore to the Lord
And vowed to (B)the Mighty One of Jacob,
“Surely I will not [a]enter (C)my house,
Nor [b]lie on my bed;
I will not (D)give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
Until I find a (E)place for the Lord,
[c]A dwelling place for (F)the Mighty One of Jacob.”

Behold, we heard of it in (G)Ephrathah,
We found it in the (H)field of [d]Jaar.
Let us go into His [e](I)dwelling place;
Let us (J)worship at His (K)footstool.
(L)Arise, O Lord, to Your (M)resting place,
You and the ark of Your (N)strength.
Let Your priests be (O)clothed with righteousness,
And let Your (P)godly ones sing for joy.

10 For the sake of David Your servant,
Do not turn away the face of Your (Q)anointed.
11 The Lord has (R)sworn to David
A truth from which He will not turn back:
(S)Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.
12 “If your sons will keep My covenant
And My testimony which I will teach them,
Their sons also shall (T)sit upon your throne forever.”

13 For the Lord has (U)chosen Zion;
He has (V)desired it for His habitation.
14 “This is My (W)resting place forever;
Here I will (X)dwell, for I have desired it.
15 “I will abundantly (Y)bless her provision;
I will (Z)satisfy her needy with bread.
16 “Her (AA)priests also I will clothe with salvation,
And her (AB)godly ones will sing aloud for joy.
17 “There I will cause the (AC)horn of David to spring forth;
I have prepared a (AD)lamp for Mine anointed.
18 “His enemies I will (AE)clothe with shame,
But upon himself his (AF)crown shall shine.”
