Psalm 122

   A song of ascents, by David.
   1 I was glad because they said to me, "We will go to the LORD's temple."
   2 Our feet are standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.
   3 Jerusalem is a city designed to accommodate an assembly.
   4 The tribes go up there, the tribes of the LORD, where it is required that Israel give thanks to the name of the LORD.
   5 Indeed, the leaders sit there on thrones and make legal decisions, on the thrones of the house of David.
   6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May those who love her prosper!
   7 May there be peace inside your defenses, and prosperity inside your fortresses!
   8 For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors I will say, "May there be peace in you!"
   9 For the sake of the temple of the LORD our God I will pray for you to prosper.
