122:1 A Song of Ascents; of David. I rejoiced when they said unto me: 'Let us go unto the house of the Lord.'
122:2 Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
122:3 Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
122:4 Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
122:5 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee.
122:7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say: 'Peace be within thee.'
122:9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
