Psalm 122

122
Let Us Go to the House of the Lord
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents. Of David.
1I was glad when they said to me,
# Isa. 2:3; Mic. 4:2; Zech. 8:21 “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
2Our feet have been standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3Jerusalem—#Ps. 147:2 built as a city
that is #Neh. 4:6bound firmly together,
4to which the tribes #Deut. 16:16 go up,
the tribes of the Lord,
as was #Ps. 78:5decreed for#122:4 Or as a testimony for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5There #Deut. 17:8; 2 Sam. 15:2; 1 Kgs. 3:16; 7:7; 2 Chr. 19:8thrones for judgment were set,
the thrones of the house of David.
6 # [Ps. 51:18; Jer. 29:7] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
“May they be secure who love you!
7Peace be within your #Ps. 48:13walls
and security within your #Ps. 48:13towers!”
8For my brothers and companions’ sake
I will say, #[1 Sam. 25:6; Ps. 85:8]“Peace be within you!”
9For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will #Neh. 2:10; Esth. 10:3seek your good.
