Psalm 122
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.

1I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

2Our feet are standing

Within your gates, O Jerusalem,

3Jerusalem, that is built

As a city that is firmly joined together;

4To which the [twelve] tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD,

[As was decreed as] an ordinance for Israel,

To give thanks to the name of the LORD.

5For there the thrones of judgment were set,

The thrones of the house of David.

6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May they prosper who love you [holy city].

7“May peace be within your walls

And prosperity within your palaces.”

8For the sake of my brothers and my friends,

I will now say, “May peace be within you.”

9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God [which is Jerusalem],

I will seek your (the city’s) good.

[a] PSALM 122Title See Psalm 120 title note.
