Psalm 122

1  I was glad when they said to me, 
   ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’
2  And now our feet are standing 
   within your gates, O Jerusalem;
3  Jerusalem, built as a city 
   that is at unity in itself.
4  Thither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, 
   as is decreed for Israel,
      to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5  For there are set the thrones of judgement, 
   the thrones of the house of David.
6  O pray for the peace of Jerusalem: 
   ‘May they prosper who love you.
7  ‘Peace be within your walls 
   and tranquillity within your palaces.’
8  For my kindred and companions’ sake, 
   I will pray that peace be with you.
9  For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, 
   I will seek to do you good.

Psalm 123

1  To you I lift up my eyes, 
   to you that are enthroned in the heavens.
2  As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, 
   or the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
3  So our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, 
   until he have mercy upon us.
4  Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, 
   for we have had more than enough of contempt.
5  Our soul has had more than enough of the scorn of the arrogant, 
   and of the contempt of the proud.
