Psalm 122 World English Bible

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem

122 1  I was glad when they said to me,
“Let’s go to Yahweh’s house!” 2  Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem; 3  Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together; 4  where the tribes go up, even Yah’s tribes,
according to an ordinance for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of Yahweh. 5  For there are set thrones for judgment,
the thrones of David’s house.

6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Those who love you will prosper. 7  Peace be within your walls,
and prosperity within your palaces. 8  For my brothers’ and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, “Peace be within you.” 9  For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God,
I will seek your good.
