1: (A Song of Ascents. By David.) I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to Yahweh's house!" 2: Our feet are standing Within your gates, Jerusalem; 3: Jerusalem, that is built As a city that is compact together; 4: Where the tribes go up, even Yah's tribes, According to an ordinance for Israel, To give thanks to the name of Yahweh. 5: For there are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of David's house. 6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They will prosper who love you. 7: Peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces. 8: For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now say, "Peace be within you." 9: For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good.
