Psalm 122

Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1

I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

2

Our feet are standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem.

 

3

Jerusalem—built as a city

that is bound firmly together.

4

To it the tribes go up,

the tribes of the Lord,

as was decreed for Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the Lord.

5

For there the thrones for judgment were set up,

the thrones of the house of David.

 

6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May they prosper who love you.

7

Peace be within your walls,

and security within your towers.”

8

For the sake of my relatives 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 good.
