Psalm 122 A Prayer for Jerusalem A Davidic song of ascents. 122 1I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” 2Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem— 3Jerusalem, built as a city should be, solidly joined together, 4where the tribes, Yahweh’s tribes, go up to give thanks to the name of Yahweh. (This is an ordinance for Israel.) 5There, thrones for judgment are placed, thrones of the house of David. 6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you prosper; 7may there be peace within your walls, prosperity within your fortresses.” 8Because of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be with you.” 9Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.
