GOD'S WORD® Translation
1[A song by David for going up to worship.] I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to the house of the LORD."
2Our feet are standing inside your gates, Jerusalem.
3Jerusalem is built to be a city where the people are united.
4All of the LORD's tribes go to that city because it is a law in Israel to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5The court of justice sits there. It consists of [princes who are] David's descendants.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you prosper.
7May there be peace inside your walls and prosperity in your palaces."
8For the sake of my relatives and friends, let me say, "May it go well for you!"
9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek what is good for you.
