Psalms 132, Hebrews 12:18 – 29, John 4:1 – 26

Sermon Outline:

I Psalm 132

Psalm 132:1–14 (NKJV)

1Lord, remember David And all his afflictions;

2How he swore to the Lord, And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:

3“Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house, Or go up to the comfort of my bed;

4I will not give sleep to my eyes Or slumber to my eyelids,

5Until I find a place for the Lord, A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

6Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah; We found it in the fields of the woods.

7Let us go into His tabernacle; Let us worship at His footstool.

8Arise, O Lord, to Your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength.

9Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness, And let Your saints shout for joy.

10For Your servant David’s sake, Do not turn away the face of Your Anointed.

11The Lord has sworn in truth to David; He will not turn from it: “I will set upon your throne the fruit of your body.

12If your sons will keep My covenant And My testimony which I shall teach them, Their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore.”

13For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place:

14“This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
