Psalm 122

1 A song of ascents. By David: I was glad when they said to me, "The house of ADONAI! Let's go!"
2 Our feet were already standing at your gates, Yerushalayim.
3 Yerushalayim, built as a city fostering friendship and unity.
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.
5 For there the thrones of justice were set up, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper.
7 May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces.
8 For the sake of my family and friends, I say, "Shalom be within you!"
9 For the sake of the house of ADONAI our God, I will seek your well-being.
