Psalm 122
World English Bible [Par] 

Let Us Go to the Lord's House!

1A Song of Ascents. By David. I was glad when they said to me, “Let’s go to Yahweh’s house!”

2Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem!

3Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together,

4where the tribes go up, even Yah’s tribes, according to an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to Yahweh’s name.

5For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of David’s house.

6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper.

7Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.

8For my brothers’ and companions’ sakes, I will now say, “Peace be within you.”

9For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good.
