Psalm 122:1-9

A Song of degrees of David. 122  I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. 2  Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. 3  Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: 4  Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD. 5  For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7  Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8  For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9  Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
