Psalm 122 HNV/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to the LORD's house!" 1 I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2 Our feet are standing Within your gates, Yerushalayim; 2 Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Yerushalayim, that is built As a city that is compact together; 3 Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.
4 Where the tribes go up, even the LORD's tribes, According to an ordinance for Yisra'el, To give thanks to the name of the LORD. 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 are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of David's house. 5 There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the shalom of Yerushalayim. They will prosper who love you. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure.
7 Shalom be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces. 7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."
8 For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now 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 the LORD our God, I will seek your good. 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
