Psalm 122 Eve before Sunday 4
I rejoiced with those who said to me, * “We will enter the house of Yahweh!”
My feet were standing * within the gates of Jerusalem,
Jerusalem which was built as his city, * which was finished by him alone.
There the tribes go up, * the tribes of Yah.
It is a requirement, Israel, * to give thanks to Yahweh's name,
because there they sat * on thrones of judgment, * on thrones of the house of David.
May they pray for your peace, Jerusalem; * may they prosper who love you!
Let there be peace within your walls, * prosperity within your citadels.
For the sake of my brothers and friends * I pronounce, “Peace be within you.”
For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God * I will seek your good.
