122 1 I was glad when they said to me,
"Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
122 2 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
122 3 Jerusalem, built as a city
which is bound firmly together,
122 4 to which the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
122 5 There thrones for judgment were set,
the thrones of the house of David.
122 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
"May they prosper who love you!
122 7 Peace be within your walls,
and security within your towers!"
122 8 For my brethren and companions' sake I will say,
"Peace be within you!"
122 9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good.
