Psalm 122 English Standard Version

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

122 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord!" 2  Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem! 3  Jerusalem-- built as a city that is bound firmly together, 4  to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for[1] Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. 5  There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.

6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you! 7  Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!" 8  For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!" 9  For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.
