1 I was glad, when they were saying unto me, Unto the house of Yahweh, let us go!
2 Standing are our feet, within thy gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem! that hath been builded, A true city, all joined together as one:
4 Whither have come up the tribes, The tribes of Yah, A testimony to Israel, To give thanks unto the Name of Yahweh:
5 For there are setThrones for justice, Thrones for the house David.
6 Ask ye for the peace of Jerusalem, They shall prosper, who love thee!
7 Peace be within thy walls, prosperity within thy palaces:
8 For the sake of my brethren and friends, Oh, might I speak , Peace be within thee!
9 For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, will I seek blessing for thee.
