A Song of degrees of David.
1
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2
Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3
Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4
Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5
For there are set thrones of 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 walls, and prosperity 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 seek thy good.
