Tehillim 122/Psalm 122

Psalm 122

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
I rejoiced when they said to me,
“Let us go to the House of Adonai.”
Our feet are standing within your gates,
O Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, built as a city joined together.
There the tribes go up, the tribes of Adonai,
as a testimony to Israel,
to praise the Name of Adonai.
For thrones are set there for judgment,
the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
“May those who love you be at peace!
May there be shalom within your walls,
quietness within your palaces.”
For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say:
“Shalom be within you.”
For the sake of the House of Adonai our God,
I will seek your good.
