Psalm 122

The Joy of Going to the House of the Lord

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1 I was glad when they said to me, a“Let us go into the house of the Lord.”

2 Our feet have been standing

Within your gates, O Jerusalem!

3 Jerusalem is built

As a city that is bcompact together,

4 cWhere the tribes go up,

The tribes of the Lord,

1To dthe Testimony of Israel,

To give thanks to the name of the Lord.

5 eFor thrones are set there for judgment,

The thrones of the house of David.

6 fPray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May they prosper who love you.

7 Peace be within your walls,

Prosperity within your palaces.”

8 For the sake of my brethren and companions,

I will now say, “Peace be within you.”

9 Because of the house of the Lord our God

I will gseek your good.
