Psalms - Chapter 122

1

A song of ascents. Of David. I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."


2

Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.


3

Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.


4

That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel.


5

There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David.


6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure.


7

May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."


8

For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you."


9

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