Psalms - Chapter 122 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Song of Ascents. Of David. I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go into the house of the Lord."
  • 2. Our feet have been standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem!
  • 3. Jerusalem is built As a city that is compact together,
  • 4. Where the tribes go up, The tribes of the Lord, To the Testimony of Israel, To give thanks to the name of the Lord.
  • 5. For thrones are set there for judgment, The thrones of the house of David.
  • 6. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who love you.
  • 7. Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces."
  • 8. For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, "Peace be within you."
  • 9. Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek your good.
