Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1I was gladdened when they said to me, "We are going to the house of Lord Jehovah"!
2My feet had been standing inside your gates, oh, Jerusalem!
3Jerusalem is a building like a city surrounded with a wall.
4There went up the tribes, the tribes of Lord Jehovah, a testimony to Israel.
5Because there they set up thrones for judgment, to thank The Name of Lord Jehovah, the thrones of the house of David.
6Invoke the peace of Jerusalem; your friends shall be prosperous.
7Let there be peace by your power and prosperity within your walls.
8Because of my brothers and my friends I shall pronounce peace upon you.
9For the sake of the house of Lord Jehovah, our God, I shall seek for your good.
