«A Song of Ascents. By David
I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to Yahweh's house!"
2
Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem;
3
Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together;
4
where the tribes go up, even Yah's tribes, according to an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of Yahweh.
5
For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of David's house.
6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper.
7
Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.
8
For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now say, "Peace be within you."
9
For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good.
