I will not let myself rest.
I will not let my eyes sleep
nor close my eyelids in slumber
until I find a place to build a house for the LORD,
a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.”
We heard that the Ark was in Ephrathah;
then we found it in the distant countryside
Let us go to the sanctuary of the LORD;
let us worship at the footstool of his throne.
Arise, O LORD, and enter your resting place,
along with the Ark, the symbol of your power.
May your priests be clothed in godliness;
may your loyal servants sing for joy.
For the sake of your servant David,
do not reject the king you have anointed.
The LORD swore an oath to David
with a promise he will never take back:
“I will place one of your descendants
on your throne.
If your descendants obey the terms of
and the laws that I teach them,
then your royal line
will continue forever and ever.”
For the LORD has chosen Jerusalem*;
he has desired it for his home.
“ This is my resting place forever,” he said.
“I will live here, for this is the home I desired.
I will bless this city and make it prosperous;
I will satisfy its poor with food.
I will clothe its priests with godliness;
its faithful servants will sing for joy.
Here I will increase the power of David;
my anointed one will be a light for
I will clothe his enemies with shame,
but he will be a glorious king.”
A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
Oh, praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD,
you who serve at night in the house of the LORD.
Lift your hands toward the sanctuary,
and praise the LORD.
132:13 Hebrew Zion.
