Psalms 122:9

Psalms 122:9

Because of the house of the Lord our God
Not because of his own palace, nor because of his own house and family; nor because of his own personal interest; though all were concerned in the peace of Jerusalem: but chiefly because of the sanctuary of the Lord, as the Targum; because of the worship and service of God in it; because of his great love and zeal for the house and church of the living God, which ate him up, ( Psalms 69:9 ) ;

I will seek thy good;
the good of Jerusalem, the good of the church of God; do all the good he could to it both with his purse and prayers, and by stirring up others to do the same; see ( Psalms 51:18 ) .
