I was glad when they said to me :
Let us go to the house of the Lord.
And now our feet are standing :
within your gates, O Jerusalem;
Jerusalem which is built as a city :
where the pilgrims gather in unity.
There the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord :
as he commanded Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
There are set thrones of judgement :
the thrones of the house of David.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem :
may those who love you prosper.
Peace be within your walls :
and prosperity in your palaces.
For the sake of my brothers and companions :
I will pray that peace be with you.
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God :
I will seek for your good.
