Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.
A Song of Ascents, of David.
1I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the LORD.”
2Our feet are standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem,
3Jerusalem, that is built
As a city that is compact together;
4To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD—
An ordinance for Israel—
To give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5For there thrones were set for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
7“May peace be within your walls,
And prosperity within your palaces.”
8For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “May peace be within you.”
9For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your good.
