A Song of Degrees Of David
1 I was glad when they said to me, |Into the house of Jehovah we will go.
2 |Our feet shall be standing in thy gates, O Jerusalem!|
3 Jerusalem built as a city, compact in itself together.
4 Thither ascended the tribes, the tribes of God, For a testimony to Israel, To celebrate the name of Jehovah.
5 For there have sat thrones for judgment, The thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray ye for the peace of Jerusalem: Prosper may those who love thee!
7 Peace be within thy bulwark! Prosperity within thy towers!
8 For the sake of my brethren and my neighbors, I will say now, |Peace [be] within thee!|
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I will seek good for thee.
