New International Version

1O LORD, remember David and all the hardships he endured. 2He swore an oath to the LORD and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: 3"I will not enter my house or go to my bed- 4I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids, 5till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob." 6We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar: 7"Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship at his footstool- 8arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. 9May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy." 10For the sake of David your servant, do not reject your anointed one. 11The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath that he will not revoke: "One of your own descendants I will place on your throne- 12if your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever." 13For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling: 14"This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it- 15I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food. 16I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints will ever sing for joy. 17"Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. 18I will clothe his enemies with shame, but the crown on his head will be resplendent."
Psalms 132 (NIV)
