Psalm 122

A song by David for going up to worship.

I was glad when they said to me,
    “Let’s go to the house of Yahweh.”
Our feet are standing inside your gates, Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is built to be a city
    where the people are united.[a]
All of Yah’s tribes go to that city
    because it is a law in Israel
        to give thanks to the name of Yahweh.
The court of justice sits there.
    It consists of princes who are David’s descendants.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    “May those who love you prosper.
May there be peace inside your walls
    and prosperity in your palaces.”
For the sake of my relatives and friends, let me say,
    “May it go well for you!”
For the sake of the house of Yahweh our Elohim,
    I will seek what is good for you.
