132 Lord, remember David and all his suffering. 2 He made a promise to the Lord. He made a promise to the Mighty God of Jacob. 3 He said, “I will not go home to my house. I will not lie down on my bed. 4 I will not close my eyes or let myself sleep 5 until I find a place for the Lord. I want to provide a home for the Mighty God of Jacob.”
6 We heard about the Ark of the Covenant in Bethlehem. We found it at Kiriath Jearim. 7 Let’s go to the Lord’s house. Let’s worship at his footstool. 8 Rise, Lord, and come to your resting place. Come with the Ark of the Covenant that shows your strength. 9 May your priests do what is right. May your people sing for joy.
10 For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your appointed king. 11 The Lord made a promise to David. It was a sure promise that he will not take back. He promised, “I will make one of your descendants rule as king after you. 12 But your sons must keep my agreement and the rules that I teach them. Then their sons after them will rule on your throne forever and ever.”
13 The Lord has chosen Jerusalem. He wants it for his home. 14 He says, “This is my resting place forever. Here is where I want to stay. 15 I will bless her with plenty of food. I will fill her poor with food. 16 I will let her priests receive salvation. And those who worship me will really sing for joy.
17 “I will make a king come from the family of David. I will provide my appointed one descendants to rule after him. 18 I will cover his enemies with shame. But his crown will shine.”
