Psalm 122 – The House of the Lord

Psalm 122 – 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.
