A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem
A Song of degrees of David.
1I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go into the house of the Lord.
2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4whither the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord,
unto the testimony of Israel,
to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
5For there are set thrones of 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.
9Because of the house of the Lord our God
I will seek thy good.
