Psalm 122 (121)
8We will go to the house of the Lord.
1 I rejoiced with those who said to me,
1 “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
2 And now we have set foot
2 within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem, just like a city,
3 where everything falls into place!
4 There the tribes go up,
4 the tribes of the Lord, the assembly of Israel,
4 to give thanks to the Lord’s name,
5 There stand the courts of justice
5 the offices of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
6 “May those who love you prosper!
7 May peace be within your walls
7 and security within your citadels!”
8 For the sake of my relatives and friends
8 I will say, “Peace be with you!”
9 For the sake of the house of our Lord,
9 I will pray for your good.
