1
A Song of Ascents;
of David.
I rejoiced when they said unto me: "Let us go unto the house of the LORD."
2
Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
3
Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together;
4
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.
5
For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem;
may they prosper that love thee.
7
Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
8
For my brethren and companions" sakes, I will now say: "Peace be within thee."
9
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
