Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 132

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 A Song of Ascents. HaShem, remember unto David all his affliction;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 How he swore unto HaShem, and vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 'Surely I will not come into the tent of my house, nor go up into the bed that is spread for me;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, nor slumber to mine eyelids;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Until I find out a place for HaShem, a dwelling-place for the Mighty One of Jacob.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Lo, we heard of it as being in Ephrath; we found it in the field of the wood.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Let us go into His dwelling-place; let us worship at His footstool.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Arise, O HaShem, unto Thy resting-place; Thou, and the ark of Thy strength.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let Thy saints shout for joy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 For Thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of Thine anointed.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 HaShem swore unto David in truth; He will not turn back from it: 'Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 If thy children keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, their children also for ever shall sit upon thy throne.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 For HaShem hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for His habitation:

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 'This is My resting-place for ever; here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 I will abundantly bless her provision; I will give her needy bread in plenty.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Her priests also will I clothe with salvation; and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 There will I make a horn to shoot up unto David, there have I ordered a lamp for Mine anointed.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 His enemies will I clothe with shame; but upon himself shall his crown shine.'
