Jerusalem the Site of God’s Presence

122 A song of ascents. Of David.a

I rejoiced in those who said to me,

“Let us go to the houseb of Yahweh.”

Our feet are standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem—

Jerusalem that is built

as a city that is joined together,

where the tribes go up,

the tribes of Yahc as a testimony for Israel,

to give thanks to the name of Yahweh.

For there the thrones sitd for judgment,

thrones of David’s house.

Praye for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who love you be at ease.

May peace be within your walls,

security within your palaces.”

For the sake of my brothers and my friends,

I will say, “Peace be within you.”

For the sake of the housef of Yahweh our God,

I will seek your good.
