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.
