A Song of Ascents. David’s.
122 I was glad when they were saying unto me, Unto the house of Yahweh let us go!
2 Standing are our feet, Within thy gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem! that hath been builded, A true city all joined together as one:
4 Whither have come up the tribes, The tribes of Yah, A testimony to Israel, To give thanks unto the Name of Yahweh:
5 For there are set—Thrones for justice, Thrones for the house of David.
6 Ask ye for the peace of Jerusalem, They shall prosper who love thee!
7 Peace be within thy walls, Prosperity within thy palaces:
8 For the sake of my brethren and friends Oh might I speak [saying], Peace be within thee!
9 For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God Will I seek blessing for thee.
