Psalm 122Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

122 I was glad when they said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
Our feet have been standing
    within your gates, O Jerusalem!

Jerusalem, built as a city
    which is bound firmly together,
to which the tribes go up,
    the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel,
    to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
There thrones for judgment were set,
    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 my brethren and companions’ sake
    I will say, “Peace be within you!”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek your good.
