Psalm 122

Let Us Go to the House of the Lord

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

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