Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The song of degrees of David. I am glad in these things, that be said to me; We shall go into the house of the Lord. (The song of degrees for David. I was glad, when they said to me, We shall go to the House of the Lord.) 1 I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2 Our feet were standing; in thy halls/in thy foreyards, thou Jerusalem. (And now our feet stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.) 2 Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem, which is builded as a city; whose partaking thereof is into the same thing. (Jerusalem is built to be a city, where people be together, yea, with one heart and mind.) 3 Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.
4 For the lineages, the lineages of the Lord, ascended thither, the witnessing of Israel; to acknowledge to the name of the Lord. (For the tribes, the Lord's tribes, come there to give thanks to the Lord; that is Israel's duty.) 4 That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel.
5 For they sat there on seats in doom; seats on the house of David. (For the thrones of judgement, or of justice, be put there; yea, the thrones of the house of David.) 5 There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray ye those things, that be to the peace of Jerusalem; and abundance be to them that love thee. (Pray ye for the peace of Jerusalem; and say, May those who love thee prosper, or have great abundance.) 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure.
7 Peace be made in thy strength; and abundance in thy towers. (May there be peace within thy strongholds, or thy fortresses; and prosperity within thy palaces.) 7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."
8 For my brethren and my neighbours; I spake peace of thee. (For the sake of my brothers, or my kinsmen, and my neighbours; I say, Peace be with thee.) 8 For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you."
9 For the house of our Lord God; I sought goods to thee. (For the sake of the House of the Lord our God; I shall seek thy good, or thy prosperity/I shall pray for good things for thee.) 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
