The Walls of Jerusalem

Psalm 122 (New International Version)

1 I rejoiced with those who said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the LORD.”

2 Our feet are standing
in your gates, O Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is built like a city
that is closely compacted together.

4 That is where the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD,
to praise the name of the LORD
according to the statute given to Israel.

5 There the thrones for judgment stand,
the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.

7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels.”

8 For the sake of my brothers and friends,
I will say, “Peace be within you.”

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your prosperity.
