- A Song of Ascents;
I rejoiced when they said unto me: "Let us go unto the house of the LORD."
- Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
- Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
- Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the LORD, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
- For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
- Pray for the peace of Jerusalem;
may they prosper that love thee.
- Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
- For my brethren and companions" sakes, I will now say: "Peace be within thee."
- For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
