Psalm 122

A song of ascents, by David.

1I was glad because they said to me,

“We will go to the Lord’s temple.”

2Our feet are standing

inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

3Jerusalem is a city designed

to accommodate an assembly.

4The tribes go up there,

the tribes of the Lord,

where it is required that Israel

give thanks to the name of the Lord.

5Indeed, the leaders sit there on thrones and make legal decisions,

on the thrones of the house of David.

6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

May those who love her prosper!

7May there be peace inside your defenses,

and prosperity inside your fortresses!

8For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors

I will say, “May there be peace in you!”

9For the sake of the temple of the Lord our God

I will pray for you to prosper.

Psalm 121
