Psalm 122New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
A Pilgrim’s Prayer for Jerusalem
1 A song of ascents. Of David.
I rejoiced when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
2 And now our feet are standing
within your gates, Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem, built as a city,
walled round about.
4 There the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord,
As it was decreed for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 There are the thrones of justice,
the thrones of the house of David.
6 For the peace of Jerusalem pray:
“May those who love you prosper!
7 May peace be within your ramparts,
prosperity within your towers.”
8 For the sake of my brothers and friends I say,
“Peace be with you.”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord, our God,
I pray for your good.
