Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A song of ascents. By David: I was glad when they said to me, "The house of ADONAI! Let's go!" 1 I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2 Our feet were already standing at your gates, Yerushalayim. 2 Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Yerushalayim, built as a city fostering friendship and unity. 3 Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.
4 The tribes have gone up there, the tribes of ADONAI, as a witness to Isra'el, to give thanks to the name of ADONAI. 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 there the thrones of justice were set up, the thrones of the house of David. 5 There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure.
7 May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces. 7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."
8 For the sake of my family and friends, I say, "Shalom be within you!" 8 For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you."
9 For the sake of the house of ADONAI our God, I will seek your well-being. 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
