Psalm 122 Bible in Basic English

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

122 1  I was glad because they said to me, We will go into the house of the Lord. 2  At last our feet were inside your doors, O Jerusalem. 3  O Jerusalem, you are like a town which is well joined together; 4  To which the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, for a witness to Israel, to give praise to the name of the Lord. 5  For there seats for the judges were placed, even the rulers' seats of the line of David.

6  O make prayers for the peace of Jerusalem; may they whose love is given to you do well. 7  May peace be inside your walls, and wealth in your noble houses. 8  Because of my brothers and friends, I will now say, Let peace be with you. 9  Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will be working for your good.
