I was glad when they said to me, "Let us 1go to the house of the LORD."
Our feet are standing Within your 2gates, O Jerusalem,
3Jerusalem, that is 3built As a city that is 4compacttogether;
To which the tribes5go up, even the tribes of athe LORD - bAn ordinance for Israel - To givethanks to the name of the LORD.
For there6thrones were set for judgment, The thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the 7peace of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who 8love you.
"May peace be within your 9walls, And prosperity within your 10palaces."
For the sake of my 11brothers and my friends, I will nowsay, "12May peace be within you."
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will 13seek your good.
