6 We heard about this in Ephrathah.[a]
We found the Box of the Agreement at Kiriath Jearim.[b]
7 Now, let’s go to the Lord’s house.
Let’s worship at his throne.[c]
8 Lord, get up[d] and go to your resting place;
go with the Box that shows your power.
- Psalm 132:6 Ephrathah Bethlehem, the town where David was born.
- Psalm 132:6 Kiriath Jearim Literally, “fields of the forest.” The Hebrew word meaning “forest” is like the name of this city.
- Psalm 132:7 at his throne Literally, “at his footstool.” This can mean the Box of the Agreement, the Holy Tent, or the Temple. God is like a king sitting on his throne and resting his feet on the place where people worship him.
- Psalm 132:8 Lord, get up The people said this when they lifted the Box of the Agreement and took it into battle with them. This showed that God was with them. See Num. 10:35-36.
