A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem
122 1 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord ." 2 Our feet are standing Within your gates , O Jerusalem , 3 Jerusalem , that is built As a city that is compact together ; 4 To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord - An ordinance for Israel - To give thanks to the name of the Lord . 5 For there thrones were set for judgment , The thrones of the house of David .
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem : "May they prosper who love you. 7 "May peace be within your walls , And prosperity within your palaces ." 8 For the sake of my brothers and my friends , I will now say , " May peace be within you." 9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God , I will seek your good .
