Psalm 122

      Jerusalem the Site of God’s Presence

 122 A song of ascents. Of David. 

   1 I rejoiced in those who said to me, 

   “Let us go to the house of Yahweh.” 

   2 Our feet are standing 

   within your gates, O Jerusalem— 

   3 Jerusalem that is built 

   as a city that is joined together, 

   4 where the tribes go up, 

   the tribes of Yah as a testimony for Israel, 

   to give thanks to the name of Yahweh. 

   5 For there the thrones sit for judgment, 

   thrones of David’s house. 

   6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: 

   “May those who love you be at ease. 

   7 May peace be within your walls, 

   security within your palaces.” 

   8 For the sake of my brothers and my friends, 

   I will say, “Peace be within you.” 

   9 For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, 

   I will seek your good.
