A Song of the Ascents. Of David.
122 I rejoiced when they said to me:
“Let us go to the house of Jehovah.”+
2 And now our feet are standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem.+
3 Jerusalem is built as a city
That is joined together as one.+
4 The tribes have gone up to it,
The tribes of Jah,*
According to the reminder to Israel,
To give thanks to the name of Jehovah.+
5 For thrones for judgment were set up there,+
Thrones of the house of David.+
6 Ask for the peace of Jerusalem.+
Those who love you, O city, will be secure.
7 May peace continue within your ramparts,*
Security within your fortified towers.
8 For the sake of my brothers and my companions I will say:
“May there be peace within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God,+
I will seek good for you.
