Psalm 122

Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

I was glad when they said to me,
    ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
Our feet are standing
    within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem—built as a city
    that is bound firmly together.
To it the tribes go up,
    the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel,
    to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
For there the thrones for judgement were set up,
    the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
    ‘May they prosper who love you.
Peace be within your walls,
    and security within your towers.’
For the sake of my relatives and friends
    I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your good.
