Psalm 122
King James BibleEnglish Standard Version
1A Song of degrees of David. I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.1I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.2Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:3Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together,
4Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.4to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.5There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! “May they be secure who love you!
7Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.7Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!”
8For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.8For my brothers and companions’ sake I will say, “Peace be within you!”
9Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
