Psalm 122

Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

A Song of Ascents. Of David.
1 I was glad when they said to me,
   ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’
2 Our feet are standing
   within your gates, O Jerusalem.


3 Jerusalem—built as a city
   that is bound firmly together.
4 To it the tribes go up,
   the tribes of the Lord,
as was decreed for Israel,
   to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 For there the thrones for judgement were set up,
   the thrones of the house of David.


6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
   ‘May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls,
   and security within your towers.’
8 For the sake of my relatives and friends
   I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
   I will seek your good.

Isaiah 2:1-5

The Future House of God

2The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.


2 In days to come
   the mountain of the Lord’s house
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
   and shall be raised above the hills;
all the nations shall stream to it.
3   Many peoples shall come and say,
‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
   to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways
   and that we may walk in his paths.’
For out of Zion shall go forth instruction,
   and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 He shall judge between the nations,
   and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
   and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
   neither shall they learn war any more.

Judgement Pronounced on Arrogance


5 O house of Jacob,
   come, let us walk
   in the light of the Lord!
