Psalm 122

1  A Song of degrees of David. 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.
