THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 122 ©
David rejoices over the welfare of the house or church of God at Jerusalem, wishing that it might continue long.
A1 Song of degrees of David.
I WAS glad when they said unto me, Let us go 2into the house of the LORD.
Our feet 3shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded 4as a city that is compact together:
Whither 5the tribes 6go up, the tribes of the LORD, 7unto the testimony of 8Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
For 9there are set 10thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
11Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love 12thee.
Peace be within thy 13walls, and 14prosperity within thy palaces.
For my 15brethren and companions’ sakes, 16I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because 17of the house of the LORD our God Ia will seek thy good.
