Chapter 122

122:1 A Song of Ascents; of David. I rejoiced when they said unto me: 'Let us go unto the house of the Lord.'

122:2 Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;

122:3 Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;

122:4 Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

122:5 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee.

122:7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say: 'Peace be within thee.'

122:9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
