1I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2Our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem,
3Jerusalem, that is built As a city that is compact together;
4To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD-- An ordinance for Israel-- To give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5For there thrones were set for judgment, The thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who love you.
7"May peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces."
8For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, "May peace be within you."
9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
