Psalm 132 celebrates the way that God fulfills all his promises to his people. God’s covenants promise that he will gather his people together in righteousness and joy under his chosen king. The Psalmist can see that this is starting to come true, and he celebrates the progress of God’s promises while praying that God will continue to fulfill them. Now that Jesus has come, he is the “Yes” and “Amen” of all God’s promises. We have even more reason to celebrate, and also to pray that God’s kingdom will come!
Remember, LORD, for David’s sake,
His afflictions, ev’ry one!
He swore unto the LORD. He vowed
To Jacob’s Mighty One:
“I will not go into my house.
I will not lie in bed.
I will not let my eyes have sleep,
Or give my eyelids rest,
Till I find a place for the LORD;
Find a dwelling place for Jacob’s Mighty One.”
Look! We heard it there in Ephrathah,
Found it there in Jaar’s fields.
Let us go up to his dwelling place;
Let us bow before his feet.
Arise, LORD, to your resting place;
With the ark your might!
And let your priests wear righteousness;
Your people sing delight!
For the sake of David your servant,
Don’t turn back the face of your Anointed One!
The LORD to David swore an oath
From which he will not turn:
“One from the womb, who is your fruit,
I will set upon your throne.
If your sons keep my covenant,
My law I’ll teach to them
Then even their sons evermore
Upon your throne will sit.”
For the LORD has chosen Zion.
He desires to have her for his dwelling place!
Forever this will be my rest;
Here I’ll dwell as I desire.
I’ll bless her food abundantly;
Satisfy her poor with bread.
Salvation I will give her priests,
To cover them like clothes;
And then her saints will sing for joy,
And David’s power will grow,
And a lamp for my Anointed I’ve prepared.
I will clothe his foes with shame,
But on him his crown will shine.
