|Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem|
|A Song of Ascents; of David.|
| ||I WAS glad when they said unto me,|
Let us go unto the house of Jehovah.
| ||Our feet are 1 standing|
Within thy gates, O Jerusalem,
| ||Jerusalem, that art builded|
As a city that is compact together;
| ||Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of Jehovah, 2|
For an 3 ordinance for Israel,
To give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
| ||For there are 4 set thrones for judgment,|
The thrones of the house of David.
| ||Pray 5 for the peace of Jerusalem:|
They 6 shall prosper that love thee.
| ||Peace be within thy walls,|
And prosperity within thy palaces.
| ||For my brethren and companions sakes,|
I will now say, 7 Peace be within thee.
| ||For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God|
I will seek thy good.
