A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 122 I rejoiced when they said to me: “Let us go to the house of Jehovah.”+ 2 And now our feet are standingWithin your gates, O Jerusalem.+ 3 Jerusalem is built as a cityThat is joined together as one.+ 4 The tribes have gone up to it,The tribes of Jah,*According to the reminder to Israel,To give thanks to the name of Jehovah.+ 5 For thrones for judgment were set up there,+Thrones of the house of David.+ 6 Ask for the peace of Jerusalem.+ Those who love you, O city, will be secure. 7 May peace continue within your ramparts,*Security within your fortified towers. 8 For the sake of my brothers and my companions I will say: “May there be peace within you.” 9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God,+I will seek good for you.
