Psalm 122

1 I was happy when they said to me, "Let's go to the Temple of the Lord."
2 Jerusalem, we are standing at your gates.
3 Jerusalem is built as a city with the buildings close together.
4 The tribes go up there, the tribes who belong to the Lord. to praise the Lord at Jerusalem.
5 There the descendants of David set their thrones to judge the people.
6 Pray for peace in Jerusalem: "May those who love her be safe.
7 May there be peace within her walls and safety within her strong towers."
8 To help my relatives and friends, I say, "Let Jerusalem have peace."
9 For the sake of the Temple of the Lord our God, I wish good for her. A song for going up to worship.
