Yahweh Has Chosen Zion

A Song of Ascents.

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

Behold, we heard of it in (G)Ephrathah,
We found it in the (H)fields of [e]Jaar.
Let us come into His [f](I)dwelling place;
Let us (J)worship at the (K)footstool of His feet.
(L)Arise, O Yahweh, 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)holy ones sing for joy.

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

13 For Yahweh has (U)chosen Zion;
He has (V)desired it for His habitation.
14 “This is My (W)resting place forever;
Here I will (X)inhabit, 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)holy ones will sing loudly for joy.
17 There I will cause the (AC)horn of David to spring up;
I have prepared a (AD)lamp for Mine anointed.
18 His enemies I will (AE)clothe with shame,
But upon him, his (AF)crown shall blossom.”
