Psalms 122

1

A SONG OF ASCENTS. OF DAVID.I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"

2

Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!

3

Jerusalem- built as a city that is bound firmly together,

4

to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

5

There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.

6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you!

7

Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!"

8

For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!"

9

For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
