Tehilim Ch. No 132

tehilim 132

Translation

1 A song of ascents. Remember, O Lord, onto David all his affliction.
2 That he swore to the Lord, he vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob;
3 That I shall not come into the tent of my house, and I shall not go up on the bed that was spread for me.
4 I shall not give sleep to my eyes nor slumber to my pupils,
5 Until I find a place for the Lord, dwellings for the Mighty One of Jacob.
6 Behold we heard it in Ephrath; we found it in the fields of the forest.
7 Let us come to His Tabernacles; let us prostrate ourselves to His footstool.
8 Arise, O Lord, to Your resting place, You and the Ark of Your might.
9 Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Your devout ones sing praises.
10 For the sake of David Your servant, turn not away the face of Your anointed.
11 The Lord has sworn to David in truth, from which He will never turn back, "Of the fruit of your body I shall seat upon your throne.
12 If your sons keep My covenant, and this, My testimony, which I shall teach them, also their sons will sit on your throne forever."
13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; He desired it for His habitation.
14 This is My resting place forever; here I shall dwell for I desired it.
15 I shall bless its provision; I shall sate its needy with bread.
16 And its priests I shall clothe with salvation, and its devout ones will sing praises.
17 There I shall cause David's horn to sprout; I have set up a lamp for My anointed.
18 His enemies I shall clothe with shame, and upon him his crown will shine.
