Psalms 132:2-5


132:2 and how he made a vow to the Lord,

and swore an oath to the powerful ruler of Jacob. 1 

132:3 He said, 2  “I will not enter my own home, 3 

or get into my bed. 4 

132:4 I will not allow my eyes to sleep,

or my eyelids to slumber,

132:5 until I find a place for the Lord,

a fine dwelling place 5  for the powerful ruler of Jacob.” 6 

1 tn Heb “the powerful [one] of Jacob.”

2 tn The words “he said” are supplied in the translation to clarify that what follows is David’s vow.

3 tn Heb “the tent of my house.”

4 tn Heb “go up upon the bed of my couch.”

5 tn The plural form of the noun may indicate degree or quality; David envisions a special dwelling place (see Pss 43:3; 46:4; 84:1).

6 tn Heb “the powerful [one] of Jacob.”
