1: A Song of the Ascents, by David. I have rejoiced in those saying to me, 'To the house of Jehovah we go.' 2: Our feet have been standing in thy gates, O Jerusalem! 3: Jerusalem -- the builded one -- [Is] as a city that is joined to itself together. 4: For thither have tribes gone up, Tribes of Jah, companies of Israel, To give thanks to the name of Jehovah. 5: For there have sat thrones of judgment, Thrones of the house of David. 6: Ask ye the peace of Jerusalem, At rest are those loving thee. 7: Peace is in thy bulwark, rest in thy high places, 8: For the sake of my brethren and my companions, Let me speak, I pray thee, 'Peace [be] in thee.' 9: For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I seek good for thee!
