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, 

      “Let us go to the house of the LORD!” 

      2 Our feet have been standing 

      within your gates, O Jerusalem! 


      3 Jerusalem—built as a city 

      that is bound firmly together, 

      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. 

      5 There thrones for judgment were set, 

      the thrones of the house of David. 


      6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! 

      “May they be secure who love you! 

      7 Peace be within your walls 

      and security within your towers!” 

      8 For my brothers and companions’ sake 

      I will say, “Peace be within you!” 

      9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, 

      I will seek your good.
