Psalms 122, תהילים קכב Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

Psalms Chapter 122: 

A Song of Ascents; of David. 

I rejoiced when they said unto me: ‘Let us go unto the house of the LORD. 

‘Our feet are standing within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the LORD, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD. 

 For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee. 

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 

For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say: ‘Peace be within thee.’
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
