Psalm 122New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.
1 I was very glad when they said to me, “Let us go up to the house of the Lord.” 2 Jerusalem, our feet are standing inside your gates.
3 Jerusalem is built like a city where everything is close together. 4 The tribes of the Lord go there to praise his name. They do it in keeping with the law he gave to Israel. 5 The thrones of the family line of David are there. That’s where the people are judged.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Say, “May those who love you be secure. 7 May there be peace inside your walls. May your people be kept safe.” 8 I’m concerned for my family and friends. So I say to Jerusalem, “May you enjoy peace.” 9 I’m concerned about the house of the Lord our God. So I pray that things will go well with Jerusalem.
