Psalm 122

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

A song of ascents. Of David.

1I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

2 Our feet are standing in your gates,

O Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is built up

as a city united together,

4 where the tribes go up,

the tribes of the LORD,

as a testimony for Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

5 For there the thrones of judgment stand,

the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

“May those who love you prosper. a 

7 May there be peace within your walls,

and prosperity b inside your fortresses.”

8 For the sake of my brothers and friends,

I will say, “Peace be within you.”

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,

I will seek your prosperity.
