I WAS glad when they said to me,
a "Let us go into the house of the LORD." 2 Our feet have been standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem!
Jerusalem is built
As a city that is b compact together, 4 c Where the tribes go up,
The tribes of the LORD,
1 To d the Testimony of Israel,
To give thanks to the name of the LORD. 5 e For thrones are set there for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
f Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May they prosper who love you. 7 Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces." 8 For the sake of my brethren and companions,
I will now say, "Peace be within you." 9 Because of the house of the LORD our God
I will g seek your good.
