132 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[A Song of Ascents.] שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלֹות  
Remember, O LORD, in David's favor,
all the hardships he endured;
זְכֹור־יְהוָה לְדָוִד אֵת כָּל־עֻנֹּותֹו׃ Come Praise the Lord all His Servants. Psalm 132(v131)
how he swore to the LORD
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע לַיהוָה נָדַר לַאֲבִיר יַעֲקֹב׃  
"I will not enter my house
or get into my bed;
אִם־אָבֹא בְּאֹהֶל בֵּיתִי אִם־אֶעֱלֶה עַל־עֶרֶשׂ יְצוּעָי׃  
I will not give sleep to my eyes
or slumber to my eyelids,
אִם־אֶתֵּן שְׁנַת לְעֵינָי לְעַפְעַפַּי תְּנוּמָה׃  
until I find a place for the LORD,
a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob."
עַד־אֶמְצָא מָקֹום לַיהוָה מִשְׁכָּנֹות לַאֲבִיר יַעֲקֹב׃ 
Lo, we heard of it in Eph'rathah,
we found it in the fields of Ja'ar.
הִנֵּה־שְׁמַעֲנוּהָ בְאֶפְרָתָה מְצָאנוּהָ בִּשְׂדֵי־יָעַר׃  
"Let us go to his dwelling place;
let us worship at his footstool!"
נָבֹואָה לְמִשְׁכְּנֹותָיו נִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה לַהֲדֹם רַגְלָיו׃  
Arise, O LORD, and go to thy resting place,
thou and the ark of thy might.
קוּמָה יְהוָה לִמְנוּחָתֶךָ אַתָּה וַאֲרֹון עֻזֶּךָ׃  
Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness,
and let thy saints shout for joy.
כֹּהֲנֶיךָ יִלְבְּשׁוּ־צֶדֶק וַחֲסִידֶיךָ יְרַנֵּנוּ׃  
For thy servant David's sake do not turn away
the face of thy anointed one.
בַּעֲבוּר דָּוִד עַבְדֶּךָ אַל־תָּשֵׁב פְּנֵי מְשִׁיחֶךָ׃  
The LORD swore to David a sure oath from which he will not turn back:
"One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne.
נִשְׁבַּע־יְהוָה לְדָוִד אֱמֶת לֹא־יָשׁוּב מִמֶּנָּה
מִפְּרִי בִטְנְךָ אָשִׁית לְכִסֵּא־לָךְ׃
 
If your sons keep my covenant and my testimonies which I shall teach them,
their sons also for ever shall sit upon your throne."
אִם־יִשְׁמְרוּ בָנֶיךָ בְּרִיתִי וְעֵדֹתִי זֹו אֲלַמְּדֵם
גַּם־בְּנֵיהֶם עֲדֵי־עַד יֵשְׁבוּ לְכִסֵּא־לָךְ׃
 
For the LORD has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his habitation:
כִּי־בָחַר יְהוָה בְּצִיֹּון אִוָּהּ לְמֹושָׁב לֹו׃  
"This is my resting place for ever;
here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
זֹאת־מְנוּחָתִי עֲדֵי־עַד פֹּה־אֵשֵׁב כִּי אִוִּתִיהָ׃  
I will abundantly bless her provisions;
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
צֵידָהּ בָּרֵךְ אֲבָרֵךְ אֶבְיֹונֶיהָ אַשְׂבִּיעַ לָחֶם׃ 
Her priests I will clothe with salvation,
and her saints will shout for joy.
וְכֹהֲנֶיהָ אַלְבִּישׁ יֶשַׁע וַחֲסִידֶיהָ רַןֵּן יְרַנֵּנוּ׃  
There I will make a horn to sprout for David;
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
שָׁם אַצְמִיחַ קֶרֶן לְדָוִד עָרַכְתִּי נֵר לִמְשִׁיחִי׃  
His enemies I will clothe with shame,
but upon himself his crown will shed its luster."
אֹויְבָיו אַלְבִּישׁ בֹּשֶׁת וְעָלָיו יָצִיץ נִזְרֹו׃  
      << | Psalms: 132 | >>
