Psalm 122

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Psalm 122

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.

I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the Lord!

Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!—

Jerusalem, which is built as a city that is compacted together—

To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed and as a testimony for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.

For there the thrones of judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you [the Holy City]!

May peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces!

For my brethren and companions’ sake, I will now say, Peace be within you!

For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek, inquire for, and require your good.
