Psalm 122 New Living Translation

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.
