Psalm 122

A song of ascents. Of David.
1 I rejoiced with those who said to me,
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."

Our feet are standing

in your gates, O Jerusalem.

3 Jerusalem is built like a city
that is closely compacted together.

4 That is where the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD,
to praise the name of the LORD
according to the statute given to Israel.

5 There the thrones for judgment stand,
the thrones of the house of David.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May those who love you be secure.

7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels."

8 For the sake of my brothers and friends,
I will say, "Peace be within you."

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your prosperity.

Thanks Karin for the Psalm today. George and I read one Psalm EVERY day.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

I LOVE the Psalms. Thank you! One of these days I'm going to start memorizing a few of 'em. :)

Hi Karin,

I love this Psalm. Last year our Ladies' Bible Study studied the ascent Psalms through the Beth Moore study which only made it even more dear to me.
