King James Version (ENGKJV)
131

A Song of degrees of David.

1311LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.131.1 exercise…: Heb. walk131.1 high: Heb. wonderful

2Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.131.2 myself: Heb. my soul

3Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.131.3 henceforth: Heb. now

132

A Song of degrees.

1321LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:

2How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;

3Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

4I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

5Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.132.5 an habitation: Heb. habitations

6Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

7We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

8Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.

9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

10For thy servant David’s sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11The 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.132.11 body: Heb. belly

12If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.

13For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.132.15 abundantly: or, surely

16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.132.17 lamp: or, candle

18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

133

A Song of degrees of David.

1331Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!133.1 together…: Heb. even together

2It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

3As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
