A Song of the going up. Of David.1 I was glad because they said to me, We will go into the house of the Lord. 2At last our feet were inside your doors, O Jerusalem. 3O Jerusalem, you are like a town which is well joined together; 4To which the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Lord, for a witness to Israel, to give praise to the name of the Lord. 5For there seats for the judges were placed, even the rulers' seats of the line of David. 6O make prayers for the peace of Jerusalem; may they whose love is given to you do well. 7May peace be inside your walls, and wealth in your noble houses. 8Because of my brothers and friends, I will now say, Let peace be with you. 9Because of the house of the Lord our God, I will be working for your good.
