American Standard Version (ASV) - Psalm 122

Prayer for the peace of Jerusalem.

A Song of Ascents; of David.

122 I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go unto the house of Jehovah.
2 Our feet [a]are standing
Within thy gates, O Jerusalem,
3 Jerusalem, that art builded
As a city that is compact together;
4 Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of [b]Jehovah,
For [c]an ordinance for Israel,
To give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
5 For there [d]are set thrones for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
6 [e]Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
[f]They shall prosper that love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls,
And prosperity within thy palaces.
8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now [g]say, Peace be within thee.
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God
I will seek thy good.
