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.
