The Psalms

A Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem
A Song of degrees of David.

1  I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2  Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3  Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4  whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD,
unto the testimony of Israel,
to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5  For there are set thrones of judgment,
the thrones of the house of David.
6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
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 say, Peace be within thee.
9  Because of the house of the LORD our God
I will seek thy good.
