A Prayer for Jerusalem
A Davidic song of ascents.
1I rejoiced with those who said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.” #Is 2:3Mc 4:2Zch 8:21
2Our feet are standing
within your gates, Jerusalem #Ps 9:14Jr 7:2
3Jerusalem, built as a city should be,
solidly joined together, #Neh 4:6Ps 147:2
4where the tribes, Yahweh’s tribes, go up
to give thanks to the name of Yahweh. #Is 2:3Mc 4:2
(This is an ordinance for Israel. #1Ch 22:13)
5There, thrones for judgment are placed,
thrones of the house of David. #Dt 17:82Ch 19:8
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you prosper; #Ps 51:18Jr 29:7
7may there be peace within your walls,
prosperity within your fortresses.” #Ps 48:3
8Because of my brothers and friends,
I will say, “Peace be with you.” #1Sm 25:6Ps 85:8
9Because of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek your good. #Neh 2:10Est 10:3
