{A Song of degrees.
Of David.}
I rejoiced when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of Jehovah.
2
Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3
Jerusalem, which art built as a city that is compact together,
4
Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of Jah, a testimony to Israel, to give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
5
For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7
Peace be within thy bulwarks, prosperity within thy palaces.
8
For my brethren and companions' sakes I will say, Peace be within thee!
9
Because of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek thy good.
