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