A song ·for going up to worship [of ascents; C perhaps sung while traveling to Jerusalem to celebrate an annual religious festival like Passover]. Of David.
122 I ·was happy [rejoiced] when they said to me, “Let’s ·go [walk] to the ·Temple [L house] of the Lord.” 2 Jerusalem, ·we [L our feet] are standing at your gates.
3 Jerusalem is built as a city ·with the buildings close together [L that is closely tied together]. 4 The tribes [C the twelve tribes of Israel] go up there, the tribes who belong to the Lord. It is the ·rule [decree; testimony] in Israel to ·praise [L thank the name of] the Lord at Jerusalem. 5 There ·are set thrones to judge the people [L dwell thrones of judgment], the thrones of the ·descendants [dynasty; L house] of David.
6 ·Pray [L Ask] for peace in Jerusalem: “May those who love her ·be safe [prosper]. 7 May there be peace within her ·walls [ramparts] and ·safety [security] within her strong towers.” 8 To help my ·relatives [brothers] and ·friends [neighbors], I say, “Let ·Jerusalem have peace [L peace be within you].” 9 For the sake of the ·Temple [L house] of the Lord our God, I ·wish [L seek] ·good [prosperity] for her.
