Bible: Psalm 122

Psalm 122 1 

122:1 A song of ascents, 2  by David.

I was glad because 3  they said to me,

“We will go to the Lord’s temple.”

122:2 Our feet are 4  standing

inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

122:3 Jerusalem 5  is a city designed

to accommodate an assembly. 6 

122:4 The tribes go up 7  there, 8 

the tribes of the Lord,

where it is required that Israel

give thanks to the name of the Lord. 9 

122:5 Indeed, 10  the leaders sit 11  there on thrones and make legal decisions,

on the thrones of the house of David. 12 

122:6 Pray 13  for the peace of Jerusalem!

May those who love her prosper! 14 

122:7 May there be peace inside your defenses,

and prosperity 15  inside your fortresses! 16 

122:8 For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors

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

122:9 For the sake of the temple of the Lord our God

I will pray for you to prosper. 17
