Psalm 122

1I was so glad when they said unto me,
“Let us go up to the house of the Lord.”
2Our feet are standing here within your gates,
O bless’d Jerusalem, of all adored.

3See now Jerusalem, the city great,
Built as a city close—compacted well;
4To which the tribes go up—tribes of the Lord,
To praise His name, as He told Israel.

5There stand the thrones for judgment set by God—
Thrones of the house of David for the land.
6Pray for the peace now of Jerusalem:
“May all who love you prosper well, and stand.

7“May there be peace within your walls always;
Prosperity within your citadels.”
8So for the sake of brothers and of friends,
I will say, “Peace be with you, peace in full.”

Peace be within you, the peace of our God.
9So, for the sake of the house of the Lord,
I will seek your prosperity and good,
O bless’d Jerusalem, of all adored.
