ESV — Psalm 122

Let Us Go to the House of the Lord

A Song of mAscents. Of David.

122  I was glad when they said to me,

g“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

Our feet have been standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem!

Jerusalem—hbuilt as a city

that is ibound firmly together,

to which the tribes jgo up,

the tribes of the Lord,

as was kdecreed for1 Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the Lord.

There lthrones for judgment were set,

the thrones of the house of David.

mPray for the peace of Jerusalem!

“May they be secure who love you!

Peace be within your nwalls

and security within your ntowers!”

For my brothers and companions' sake

I will say, o“Peace be within you!”

For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,

I will pseek your good.
