1 A Song of the Ascents. Of David.
I rejoiced when they said to me: “Let us go to the house of Jehovah.”
2 And now our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is built as a city That is joined together as one.
4 The tribes have gone up to it, The tribes of Jah, According to the reminder to Israel, To give thanks to the name of Jehovah.
5 For thrones for judgment were set up there, Thrones of the house of David.
6 Ask for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you, O city, will be secure.
7 May peace continue within your ramparts, Security within your fortified towers.
8 For the sake of my brothers and my companions I will say: “May there be peace within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I will seek good for you.
