Bible New Life Version

Psalm 122

A Prayer For The Peace Of Jerusalem

1 I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord."
2 Our feet are standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is built as a city where people come together.
4 That is where the different families go, the families of the Lord. There they give thanks to the name of the Lord, by the Law that was given to Israel.
5 For thrones were set there for telling who is guilty or not, the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May all go well for those who love you.
7 May there be peace within your walls. May all go well within your houses.
8 I will now say, "May peace be within you," for the good of my brothers and my friends.
9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will pray for your good.
