Psalm 122

Psalm 122

*A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

2 And now here we are, standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is a well-built city; its seamless walls cannot be breached.

4 All the tribes of Israel—the Lord’s people— make their pilgrimage here. They come to give thanks to the name of the Lord, as the law requires of Israel.

5 Here stand the thrones where judgment is given, the thrones of the dynasty of David.

6 Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.

7 O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and prosperity in your palaces.

8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “May you have peace.”

9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.

Love your servant Garrett
