1 I was glad when they said to me, 'Let's go to Yahweh's house!'
2 Our feet are standing Within your gates, Jerusalem;
3 Jerusalem, that is built As a city that is compact together;
4 Where the tribes go up, even Yah's tribes, According to an ordinance for Israel, To give thanks to the name of Yahweh.
5 For there are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of David's house.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They will prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.
8 For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now say, 'Peace be within you.'
9 For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good. Psalm 123 A Song of Ascents.
