I was glad when they said to me, 1"Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
Jerusalem--2built as a city that is 3bound firmly together,
to which the tribes 4go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was 5decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
There 6thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
7Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you!
Peace be within your 8walls and security within your 9towers!"
For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, 10"Peace be within you!"
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will 11seek your good.
