Psalm 122:3-5

3-5Jerusalem, well-built city,

built as a place for worship!

The city to which the tribes ascend,

all God's tribes go up to worship,

To give thanks to the name of God

this is what it means to be Israel.

Thrones for righteous judgment

are set there, famous David-thrones.

6-9Pray for Jerusalem's peace!

Prosperity to all you Jerusalem-lovers!

Friendly insiders, get along!

Hostile outsiders, keep your distance!

For the sake of my family and friends,

I say it again: live in peace!

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

I'll do my very best for you.
