132 Our Lord, don’t forget David and how he suffered. 2 Mighty God of Jacob, remember how he promised: 3 “I won’t go home or crawl into bed 4 or close my eyelids, 5 until I find a home for you, the mighty Lord God of Jacob.”
6 When we were in Ephrath, we heard that the sacred chest was somewhere near Jaar. 7 Then we said, “Let’s go to the throne of the Lord and worship at his feet.”
8 Come to your new home, Lord, you and the sacred chest with all of its power. 9 Let victory be like robes for the priests; let your faithful people celebrate and shout. 10 David is your chosen one, so don’t reject him. 11 You made a solemn promise to David, when you said, “I, the Lord, promise that someone in your family will always be king. 12 If they keep our agreement and follow my teachings, then someone in your family will rule forever.”
13 You have gladly chosen Zion as your home, our Lord. 14 You said, “This is my home! I will live here forever. 15 I will bless Zion with food, and even the poor will eat until they are full. 16 Victory will be like robes for the priests, and its faithful people will celebrate and shout. 17 I will give mighty power to the kingdom of David. Each one of my chosen kings will shine like a lamp 18 and wear a sparkling crown. But I will disgrace their enemies.”
