1: I was glad because they said to me, We will go into the house of the Lord. 2: At last our feet were inside your doors, O Jerusalem. 3: O Jerusalem, you are like a town which is well joined together; 4: To which the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, for a witness to Israel, to give praise to the name of the Lord. 5: For there seats for the judges were placed, even the rulers' seats of the line of David. 6: O make prayers for the peace of Jerusalem; may they whose love is given to you do well. 7: May peace be inside your walls, and wealth in your noble houses. 8: Because of my brothers and friends, I will now say, Let peace be with you. 9: Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will be working for your good.
