Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.
A Song of Ascents, of David.
1 I was glad when they said to me,
"Let us go R4084 to the house of the LORD."
2 Our feet are standing
Within your gates, R4085 O Jerusalem,
3 Jerusalem, that is built R4086
As a city that is compact R4087 together;
4 To which the tribes go R4088 up, even the tribes of the F1397 LORD--
An F1398 ordinance for Israel--
To give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5 For there thrones R4089 were set for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace R4090 of Jerusalem:
"May they prosper who love R4091 you.
7 "May peace be within your walls, R4092
And prosperity within your palaces." R4093
8 For the sake of my brothers R4094 and my friends,
I will now say, "May R4095 peace be within you."
9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek R4096 your good.
