Psalms 122:1-9

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • A prayer for the peace of Jerusalem

    • The joy of going to Jehovah’s house (1)

    • A city joined together as one (3)

A Song of the Ascents. Of David. 122  I rejoiced when they said to me: “Let us go to the house of Jehovah.”+   And now our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem.+   Jerusalem is built as a city That is joined together as one.+   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.+   For thrones for judgment were set up there,+ Thrones of the house of David.+   Ask for the peace of Jerusalem.+ Those who love you, O city, will be secure.   May peace continue within your ramparts,* Security within your fortified towers.   For the sake of my brothers and my companions I will say: “May there be peace within you.”   For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God,+ I will seek good for you.
