Chapter 122


A Song of the going up. Of David.
I was glad because they said to me, We will go into the house of the Lord.


At last our feet were inside your doors, O Jerusalem.


O Jerusalem, you are like a town which is well joined together;


To which the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, for a witness to Israel, to give praise to the name of the Lord.


For there seats for the judges were placed, even the rulers' seats of the line of David.


O make prayers for the peace of Jerusalem; may they whose love is given to you do well.


May peace be inside your walls, and wealth in your noble houses.


Because of my brothers and friends, I will now say, Let peace be with you.


Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will be working for your good.
