1
¶ I WAS glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the LORD.
2
My feet shall stand within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3
Jerusalem is built like a city that is surrounded by a wall,
4
Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to the testimony of Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5
For there are thrones of judgment set, the thrones of the house of David.
6
Greet Jerusalem with peace;
they shall prosper who love you.
7
Peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces.
8
For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within you.
9
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.
