1 A Song of Degrees.
I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. 2 Our feet stood in thy courts, O Jerusalem. 3 Jerusalem is built as a city whose fellowship is complete. 4 For thither the tribes went up, the tribes of the Lord, as a testimony for Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord. 5 For there are set thrones for judgment, even thrones for the house of David.
6 * Or, ask Jerusalem how it is with her.Pray now for the peace of Jerusalem: and let there be prosperity to them that love thee. 7 Let peace, I pray, be within thine host, and prosperity in thy palaces. 8 For the sake of my brethren and my neighbours, I have indeed spoken peace concerning thee. 9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have diligently sought thy good.
*121:6 Or, ask Jerusalem how it is with her.
