Psalms 122

NSB(i) 1 ([Psalm of David]) I was glad when they said to me: »Let us go to the house of Jehovah.« 2 Our feet will stand inside your gates, Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem is built to be a city where the people are united. 4 All of Jehovah’s tribes go to that city because it is a law in Israel to give thanks to the name of Jehovah. 5 The court of justice sits there. It consists of princes who are David's descendants. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you prosper. 7 May there be peace inside your walls and prosperity in your palaces. 8 For the sake of my brothers and friends let me say: »May it go well for you!« 9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I will seek what is good for you.
