The fifth book of Psalms, song 132, King James Version

Psalm 132

   A Song of degrees.
   1 LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
   2 How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;
   3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
   4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,
   5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
   6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
   7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
   8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
   9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
   10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
   11 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
   12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
   13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
   14 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
   15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
   16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
   17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
   18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
