For the LORD has chosen Jerusalem; He has desired it for His home. “This is My resting place forever,” He said. “I will live here, for this is the home I desired. I will bless this city and make it prosperous; I will satisfy its poor with food. I will clothe its priests with godliness; its faithful servants will sing for joy. Here I will increase the power of David; My Anointed One will be a light for My people. I will clothe His enemies with shame, but He will be a glorious King.” - Psalm 132:13-18
