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.
