Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of the Ascents, by David. I have rejoiced in those saying to me, `To the house of Jehovah we go.' 1 I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2 Our feet have been standing in thy gates, O Jerusalem! 2 Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem -- the builded one -- [Is] as a city that is joined to itself together. 3 Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together.
4 For thither have tribes gone up, Tribes of Jah, companies of Israel, To give thanks to the name of Jehovah. 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 have sat thrones of judgment, Thrones of the house of David. 5 There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Ask ye the peace of Jerusalem, At rest are those loving thee. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure.
7 Peace is in thy bulwark, rest in thy high places, 7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels."
8 For the sake of my brethren and my companions, Let me speak, I pray thee, `Peace [be] in thee.' 8 For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be within you."
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I seek good for thee! 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.
