1 A Song of degrees; of David. I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is built like a city that [is] all joined together as one;
4 where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to the testimony of Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5 For there were set the thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; those who love you shall be blessed.
7 Peace [be] within your walls, blessings within your palaces.
8 For my brothers and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace [be] within you.
9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek your good.
