Psalm 122 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jerusalem

122 A song of the stairway, by King David[a]
I was overjoyed when they said,
    “Let’s go up to the house of the Lord.”
And now at last we stand here, inside the very gates of Jerusalem!
O Jerusalem, you were built as a city of praise,
    where God and man mingle together.[b]
This is where all the people of Israel are required
    to come and worship Jehovah-God.
This is where the thrones of kings have been established
    to rule in righteousness;
    even King David ruled from here.
Pray and seek for Jerusalem’s peace,
    for all who love her will prosper!
O Jerusalem, may there be peace for those
    who dwell inside your walls
    and prosperity in your every palace.
I intercede for the sake of my family and friends
    who dwell there, that they may all live in peace.
For the sake of your house, our God,
    I will seek the welfare and prosperity of Jerusalem.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 122:1 David wrote this song for the people to sing for the feasts. It was sung when the worshipers entered the gates of the city Jerusalem.
  2. Psalm 122:3 The Hebrew phrase “a city bound together” is taken from a root word that means “joined, united, coupled.” By inference in the context, it is the city where God dwells and man worships.
