Psalm 132:11-18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
11 The Lord swore an oath to David in truth,
he will never turn back from it:
“Your own offspring I will set upon your throne.
12 If your sons observe my covenant,
and my decrees I shall teach them,
Their sons, in turn,
shall sit forever on your throne.”
13 Yes, the Lord has chosen Zion,
desired it for a dwelling:
14 “This is my resting place forever;
here I will dwell, for I desire it.
15 I will bless Zion with provisions;
its poor I will fill with bread.
16 I will clothe its priests with salvation;
its devout shall shout for joy.
17 There I will make a horn sprout for David;
I will set a lamp for my anointed.
18 His foes I will clothe with shame,
but on him his crown shall shine.”
