Let Us Go to the House of the Lord

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

2Our feet have been standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem!

3Jerusalem—built as a city

that is bound firmly together,

4to which the tribes go up,

the tribes of the Lord,

as was decreed for Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the Lord.

5There thrones for judgment were set,

the thrones of the house of David.

6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

“May they be secure who love you!

7Peace be within your walls

and security within your towers!”

8For my brothers and companions' sake

I will say, “Peace be within you!”

9For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,

I will seek your good.
