Tehillim - Psalms 122

1A Song of Ascents; of David.

I rejoiced when they said unto me:‘Let us go unto the house of the Lord.’

2Our feet are standingWithin thy gates, O Jerusalem;
3Jerusalem, that art buildedAs a city that is compact together;
4Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord,As a testimony unto Israel,To give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
5For there were set thrones for judgment,The thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem;May they prosper that love thee.
7Peace be within thy walls,And prosperity within thy palaces.
8For my brethren and companions’ sakes,I will now say: ‘Peace be within thee.’
9For the sake of the house of the Lord our GodI will seek thy good.
