Psalm 122:1-9

A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 122  I rejoiced when they were saying to me:+ “To the house of Jehovah+ let us go.”+   Our feet proved to be standing+ Within your gates, O Jerusalem.+   Jerusalem is one that is built like a city+ That has been joined together in oneness,+   To which the tribes have gone up,+ The tribes of Jah,*+ As a reminder to Israel+ To give thanks to the name of Jehovah.+   For there the thrones* for judgment have been sitting,+ Thrones for the house of David.+   Ask, O YOU people, for the peace of Jerusalem.+ Those loving you,* [O city,] will be free from care.+   May peace continue within your rampart,+ Freedom from care within your dwelling towers.+   For the sake of my brothers and my companions I will now speak:+ “May there be peace within you.”+   For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God+ I will keep seeking good for you.*+
