132 Lord, remember David— all the ways he suffered 2 and how he swore to the Lord, how he promised the strong one of Jacob: 3 “I won’t enter my house, won’t get into my bed. 4 I won’t let my eyes close, won’t let my eyelids sleep, 5 until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the strong one of Jacob.”
11 The Lord swore to David a true promise that God won’t take back: “I will put one of your own children on your throne. 12 And if your children keep my covenant and the laws that I will teach them, then their children too will rule on your throne forever.” 13 Because the Lord chose Zion; he wanted it for his home. 14 “This is my residence forever. I will live here because I wanted it for myself.[a] 15 I will most certainly bless its food supply; I will fill its needy full of food! 16 I will dress its priests in salvation, and its faithful will shout out loud with joy! 17 It is there that I will make David’s strength thrive.[b] I will prepare a lamp for my anointed one there. 18 I will dress his enemies in shame, but the crown he wears will shine.”
