[A song of degrees of Dauid.]
1
I was glad when they sayd vnto me: Let vs goe into the house of the Lord.
2
Our feete shall stand within thy gates, O Ierusalem.
3
Ierusalem is builded as a citie, that is compact together:
4
Whither the tribes goe vp, the tribes of the Lord, vnto the testimonie of Israel: to giue thankes vnto the name of the Lord.
5
For there are set thrones of iudgment: the thrones of the house of Dauid.
6
Pray for the peace of Ierusalem: they shall prosper that loue thee.
7
Peace be within thy walles: and prosperitie within thy palaces.
8
For my brethren and companions sakes: I will now say, Peace be within thee.
9
Because of the house of the Lord our God: I will seeke thy good.
