A Song of Ascents; of David.
1I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go unto the house of Jehovah.
2Our feet are standing
Within thy gates, O Jerusalem,
3Jerusalem, that art builded
As a city that is compact together;
4Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of Jehovah,
For an ordinance for Israel,
To give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
5For there are set thrones for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
They shall prosper that love thee.
7Peace be within thy walls,
And prosperity within thy palaces.
8For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.
9For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God
I will seek thy good.
