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 Jerusalembuilt 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.
