Psalms 122

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.
 1  I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."  2  And now here we are,
  standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.
 3  Jerusalem is a well-built city;
  its seamless walls cannot be breached.
 4  All the tribes of Israel—the LORD's people—
  make their pilgrimage here.
They come to give thanks to the name of the LORD,
  as the law requires of Israel.
 5  Here stand the thrones where judgment is given,
  the thrones of the dynasty of David.

 6  Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
  May all who love this city prosper.
 7  O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls
  and prosperity in your palaces.
 8  For the sake of my family and friends, I will say,
  "May you have peace."
 9  For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
  I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.
