Psalm 132 World English Bible (WEB)

A Song of Ascents.

132 Yahweh, remember David and all his affliction,
how he swore to Yahweh,
    and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“Surely I will not come into the structure of my house,
    nor go up into my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes,
    or slumber to my eyelids;
until I find out a place for Yahweh,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah.
    We found it in the field of Jaar:
“We will go into his dwelling place.
    We will worship at his footstool.
Arise, Yahweh, into your resting place,
    you, and the ark of your strength.
Let your priests be clothed with righteousness.
    Let your saints shout for joy!”
10 For your servant David’s sake,
    don’t turn away the face of your anointed one.
11 Yahweh has sworn to David in truth.
    He will not turn from it:
    “I will set the fruit of your body on your throne.
12 If your children will keep my covenant,
    my testimony that I will teach them,
    their children also will sit on your throne forever more.”
13 For Yahweh has chosen Zion.
    He has desired it for his habitation.
14 “This is my resting place forever.
    I will live here, for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless her provision.
    I will satisfy her poor with bread.
16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation.
    Her saints will shout aloud for joy.
17 I will make the horn of David to bud there.
    I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.
18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
    but on himself, his crown will shine.”

Psalm 132 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for the Lord’s Blessing upon the Sanctuary.

A Song of Ascents.

132 Remember, O Lord, on David’s behalf,
All his affliction;
How he swore to the Lord
And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
“Surely I will not [a]enter my house,
Nor [b]lie on my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
Until I find a place for the Lord,
[c]A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah,
We found it in the field of [d]Jaar.
Let us go into His [e]dwelling place;
Let us worship at His footstool.
Arise, O Lord, to Your resting place,
You and the ark of Your strength.
Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness,
And let Your godly ones sing for joy.

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

13 For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His habitation.
14 “This is My resting place forever;
Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
15 “I will abundantly bless her provision;
I will satisfy her needy with bread.
16 “Her priests also I will clothe with salvation,
And her godly ones will sing aloud for joy.
17 “There I will cause the horn of David to spring forth;
I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed.
18 “His enemies I will clothe with shame,
But upon himself his crown shall shine.”
