1 A Song of Ascents. Of David.
2 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"
3 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
4 Jerusalem, built as a city which is bound firmly together,
5 to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
6 There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
7 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they prosper who love you!
8 Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers!"
9 For my brethren and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!" [ (Psalms 122:10) For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good. ]
