Day 27 — Psalm 122

Hail, Jerusalem!

Song of Ascents, of David.

How I rejoiced when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of Yahweh!’
And now our feet are standing
in your gateways, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem restored! The city,
one united whole!
Here the tribes come up,
the tribes of Yahweh,

they come to praise Yahweh's name,
as He ordered Israel,
here where the tribunals of justice are,
the royal tribunals of David.

Pray for peace in Jerusalem,
‘Prosperity to your houses!
Peace inside your city walls!
Prosperity to your palaces!’

Since all are my brothers and friends,
I say ‘Peace be with you!’
Since Yahweh our God lives here,
I pray for your happiness.

Next… Psalm 123
