David in his prayer commendeth unto God the religious care he had for the Ark.
Psalms 132:1 Lorde, remembre Dauid and all his trouble. Psalms 132:2 How he swore vnto ye LORDE, & vowed a vowe vnto ye mightie one of Iacob: Psalms 132:3 I wil not come within the tabernacle of my house, ner clymme vp i to my bedde. Psalms 132:4 I wil not suffre myne eyes to slepe, ner myne eye lyddes to slober. Psalms 132:5 Vntill I fynde out a place for the LORDE, an habitacio for the mightie one of Iacob. Psalms 132:6 Lo, we herde of the same at Ephrata, & foude it in ye wod. Psalms 132:7 We wil go into his tabernacle, & fall downe before his fotestole.
His prayer at the removing of the Ark,
Psalms 132:8 Arise (o LORDE) in to thy restinge place, thou & ye arke of yi stregth. Psalms 132:9 Let thy prestes be clothed with rightuousnesse, and let thy sayntes reioyse. Psalms 132:10 For thy seruaunte Dauids sake turne not awaye the presence of thine anoynted.
with a repetition of God's promises.
Psalms 132:11 The LORDE hath made a faithfull ooth vnto Dauid, & he shal not shrenke from it: Psalms 132:12 Of the frute of thy body shal I set vpon thy seate. Psalms 132:13 Yf thy children wil kepe my couenaunt, & my testimony yt I shal lerne the, their childre also shal syt vpo thy seate for euermore. Psalms 132:14 For the LORDE hath chosen Sio, to be an habitacio for him self hath he chosen her. Psalms 132:15 This shalbe my rest, here wil I dwel, for I haue a delite therin. Psalms 132:16 I will blesse hir vytales wt increase, & wil satisfie hir poore with bred. Psalms 132:17 I wil decke hir prestes with health, & hir sayntes shal reioyse & be glad. Psalms 132:18 There shall I make the horne of Dauid to florish, I haue ordened a lanterne for myne anoynted. As for his enemies, I shal clothe the wt shame, but vpon himself shal his crowne florish.
