David in his prayer commends unto God the religious care he had for the ark.
A Song of Ascents.
132:1 Yahweh, remember David and all his affliction,
132:2 how he swore to Yahweh,
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:132:3 "Surely I will not come into the structure of my house,
nor go up into my bed;
132:4 I will not give sleep to my eyes,
or slumber to my eyelids;
132:5 until I find out a place for Yahweh,
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
132:6 Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah.
We found it in the field of Jaar:132:7 "We will go into his dwelling place.
We will worship at his footstool.
His prayer at the removing of the ark;
132:8 Arise, Yahweh, into your resting place;
you, and the ark of your strength.
132:9 Let your priest be clothed with righteousness.
Let your saints shout for joy!"
132:10 For your servant David's sake,
don't turn away the face of your anointed one.
with a repetition of God's promises.
132:11 Yahweh has sworn to David in truth.
He will not turn from it:"I will set the fruit of your body on your throne.
132:12 If your children will keep my covenant,
my testimony that I will teach them,
their children also will sit on your throne forevermore."
132:13 For Yahweh has chosen Zion.
He has desired it for his habitation.
132:14 "This is my resting place forever.
Here I will live, for I have desired it.
132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision.
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:16 Her priests I will also clothe with salvation.
Her saints will shout aloud for joy.
132:17 There I will make the horn of David to bud.
I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.
132:18 I will clothe his enemies with shame,
but on himself, his crown will be resplendent."
