Psalm 122
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic Song of Ascents

Up to Jerusalem

1I rejoiced when they kept on asking me,

“Let us go to the LORD’s Temple.”

2Our feet are standing

inside your gates, Jerusalem.

3Jerusalem stands built up,

a city knitted together.

4To it the tribes ascend—

the tribes of the LORD—

as decreed to Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

5For thrones are established there for judgment,

thrones of the house of David.

6Pray for peace for Jerusalem:

“May those who love you be at peace!a

7May peace be within your ramparts,

andb prosperityc within your fortresses.”

8For the sake of my relatives and friends

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

9For the sake of the Temple of the LORD our God,

I will seek your welfare.

a 122:6 Or you prosper
b 122:7 So LXX Syr DSS 11QPs; the Heb. lacks and
c 122:7 Or peacefulness; LXX reads abundance
