Psalm 122 Young’s Literal Translation

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

122 1  A Song of the Ascents, by David. I have rejoiced in those saying to me, 'To the house of Jehovah we go.' 2  Our feet have been standing in thy gates, O Jerusalem! 3  Jerusalem—the builded one—'Is' as a city that is joined to itself together. 4  For thither have tribes gone up, Tribes of Jah, companies of Israel, To give thanks to the name of Jehovah. 5  For there have sat thrones of judgment, Thrones of the house of David.

6  Ask ye the peace of Jerusalem, At rest are those loving thee. 7  Peace is in thy bulwark, rest in thy high places, 8  For the sake of my brethren and my companions, Let me speak, I pray thee, 'Peace 'be' in thee.' 9  For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I seek good for thee!
