A Song of Degrees.
I was glad when they said to me, Let us go into the house of the Lord. Our feet stood in thy courts, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built as a city whose fellowship is complete. 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. For there are set thrones for judgment, even thrones for the house of David.
* 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. Let peace, I pray, be within thine host, and prosperity in thy palaces. For the sake of my brethren and my neighbours, I have indeed spoken peace concerning thee. 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.
