122 I was glad for the suggestion of going to Jerusalem, to the Temple of the Lord. 2-3 Now we are standing here inside the crowded city. All Israel—Jehovah’s people—have come to worship as the law requires, to thank and praise the Lord. Look! There are the judges holding court beside the city gates, deciding all the people’s arguments.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper. O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and prosperity in your palaces. This I ask for the sake of all my brothers and my friends who live here; and may there be peace as a protection to the Temple of the Lord.
