1 I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of LORD. 2 Our feet are standing inside thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together, 4 where the tribes go up, even the tribes of LORD, [for] an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to the name of LORD. 5 For there thrones are set for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper who love thee. 7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8 For my brothers and companions' sakes I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9 For the sake of the house of LORD our God I will seek thy good.
