Psalm 132 Prayed

Psalm 132 Prayed
Praising God for fulfilling his promise to David in us

   O Lord, in the Old Testament you remembered
              David
              and all the hardships he endured.
   He swore an oath to you, O Lord.
              and made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
   “I will not enter my house
              or go to my bed—
   I will allow no sleep to my eyes,
              no slumber to my eyelids,
   till I find a place for the LORD,
              a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
   Israel heard it in Ephrathah,
              they came upon it in the fields of Jaar,
              as they went on pilgrimage to the Tabernacle:
   “Let us go to his dwelling place;
              let us worship at his footstool—
   arise, O LORD, and come to your resting place,
              you and the ark of your might.
   May your priests be clothed with righteousness;
              may your saints sing for joy.”
   For the sake of David your servant,
              do not reject your Messiah.

    O Lord, you, swore an oath to David,
              a sure oath that you did not revoke:
   “One of your own descendants
              I will place on your throne—
   if your sons keep my covenant
              and the statutes I teach them,
   then their sons will sit
              on your throne for ever and ever.”

   But they did not listen or pay attention;
              instead, they followed the stubbornness
              of their evil hearts.
   So you brought on them all the curses of the
              covenant
              you had commanded them to follow
              but that they did not keep.
   For if there had been nothing wrong with that first
              covenant,
              no place would have been sought for another.
   But the ministry Jesus has received
              is as superior to theirs
   as the covenant of which he is mediator
              is superior to the old one,
              and it is founded on better promises.

   Indeed, you promised the gospel beforehand,
              through your prophets in the Holy Scriptures,
    regarding your Son;
              who as to his human nature was this
              descendant of David. 
   Through the Holy Spirit,
              you declared him with power
   to be the Son of God
              by his resurrection from the dead:
              Jesus Christ our Lord.
   Although he was a son,
              he learned obedience from what he suffered
   and, once made perfect,
              he became the source of eternal salvation
              for all who obey him.
   For all of us who received Christ,
              to those of us who believed in his name,
   you have given us the right
              to become your children, O God.
   Through the gospel we are heirs
              together with Israel,
   members together of one body,
              and sharers together in the promise
              in Christ Jesus.
   And if we endure,
              we will also reign with him.

   O Lord our Father, you have chosen Zion,
              you have desired it for your dwelling:
   And we have come to Mount Zion,
              to the heavenly Jerusalem,
              the city of the living God.
   We have come to thousands upon thousands
              of angels in joyful assembly,
              to the Church of the firstborn,
              whose names are written in heaven. 
   We are like living stones,
              and you are building us into a spiritual house
   to be a holy priesthood,
              offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to you
              through Jesus Christ.
  This is your resting place for ever and ever;
              here you will sit enthroned,
              for you have desired it—
   O bless your Church with abundant provisions;
              satisfy her poor with food.
   O clothe her priests with salvation,
              and let her saints ever sing for joy:
   For all of us who were baptised into Christ,
              have clothed ourselves with Christ,
   and you have chosen us to be your people,
              a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
              a people belonging to you,
   that we may declare your praises,
              for you called us out of darkness
              into your wonderful light.
   Make power and influence grow
              for the Jesus, the Son of David
              and set up a lamp for your Messiah.
   Clothe Christ's enemies with shame,
              but let the crown on his head be resplendent.




Psalm 132
A song of ascents.

1   O LORD, remember David
              and all the hardships he endured.
2   He swore an oath to the LORD
              and made a vow to the Mighty One of
              Jacob:
3   “I will not enter my house
              or go to my bed—
4   I will allow no sleep to my eyes,
              no slumber to my eyelids,
5   till I find a place for the LORD,
              a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
6   We heard it in Ephrathah,
              we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7   “Let us go to his dwelling place;
              let us worship at his footstool—
8   arise, O LORD, and come to your resting
              place,
              you and the ark of your might.
9   May your priests be clothed with
              righteousness;
              may your saints sing for joy.”
10   For the sake of David your servant,
              do not reject your anointed one.

11   The LORD swore an oath to David,
              a sure oath that he will not revoke:
       “One of your own descendants
              I will place on your throne—
12   if your sons keep my covenant
              and the statutes I teach them,
       then their sons will sit
              on your throne for ever and ever.”
Jer. 11:8 But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubbornness of their evil hearts. So I brought on them all the curses of the covenant I had commanded them to follow but that they did not keep.’”
Heb. 8:7 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.
Heb. 8:6 But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises.

Rom. 1:2 the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures 3 regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David,  4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Heb. 5:8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.
John 1:12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—  13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
Eph. 3:6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
2Tim. 2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him…

13   For the LORD has chosen Zion,
              he has desired it for his dwelling:
Heb. 12:22   But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,  23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven…
1Pet. 2:5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
14   “This is my resting place for ever and ever;
              here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired
              it—
15   I will bless her with abundant provisions;
              her poor will I satisfy with food.
16   I will clothe her priests with salvation,
              and her saints will ever sing for joy.
Gal. 3:27 for all of you who were baptised into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
1Pet. 2:9  But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
17   “Here I will make a horn grow for David
              and set up a lamp for my anointed one.
18   I will clothe his enemies with shame,
              but the crown on his head will be
              resplendent.”
