Go to the House of Yahweh

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

122 I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us (A)go to the house of Yahweh.”
Our feet are standing
Within your (B)gates, O Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, which is (C)built
As a city (D)joined altogether;
To which the tribes, the tribes of Yah, (E)go up—
A testimony for Israel—
To give thanks to the name of Yahweh.
For there, (F)thrones sit for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the (G)peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who (H)love you.
May peace be within your (I)walls,
And tranquility within your (J)palaces.”
For the sake of my (K)brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “(L)May peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God,
I will (M)seek your good.
