Psalm 122 New International Version

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

122 1  I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord." 2  Our feet are standing in your gates, Jerusalem. 3  Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. 4  That is where the tribes go up- the tribes of the Lord- to praise the name of the Lordaccording to the statute given to Israel. 5  There stand the thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you be secure. 7  May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels." 8  For the sake of my family 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.
