2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

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 are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. are…: Heb. do sit
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
