Psalms 122

1 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the Lord's house."
2 And now we are here, standing inside the gates of Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem is a city restored in beautiful order and harmony.
4 This is where the tribes come, the tribes of Israel, to give thanks to the Lord according to his command.
5 Here the kings of Israel sat to judge their people.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you prosper.
7 May there be peace inside your walls and safety in your palaces."
8 For the sake of my relatives and friends I say to Jerusalem, "Peace be with you!"
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God I pray for your prosperity.
