A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.
1 I was glad when they said to me,
"Let us go to the house of the Lord."
2 And now here we are,
standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is a well-built city;
its seamless walls cannot be breached.
4 All the tribes of Israel-the Lord's people-
make their pilgrimage here.
They come to give thanks to the name of the Lord,
as the law requires of Israel.
5 Here stand the thrones where judgment is given,
the thrones of the dynasty of David.
6 Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
May all who love this city prosper.
7 O Jerusalem, may there be peace
within your walls and prosperity in your palaces.
8 For the sake of my family and friends,
I will say, "May you have peace."
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.
