Psalms 122
(A song by David for worship.)
A Song of Praise
1It made me glad when they said,
“Let's go to the house
of the Lord!”
2Jerusalem, we are standing
inside your gates.
3Jerusalem, what a strong
and beautiful city you are!
4Every tribe of the Lord
obeys him and comes to you
to praise his name.
5David's royal throne is here
where justice rules.
6Jerusalem, we pray
that you will have peace,
and that all will go well
for those who love you.
7May there be peace
inside your city walls
and in your palaces.
8Because of my friends
and my relatives,
I will pray for peace.
9And because of the house
of the Lord our God,
I will work for your good.
