David's joy in the people's resort to Jerusalem, the seat of religion and public justice: he prayeth for its peace and prosperity.
0 1A Song of degrees of David.
1 I WAS 1glad when they said unto me, 2Let us go into the house of the Lord.
2 1Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 1Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4 1Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the 2testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
5 For there aare set 1thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 1Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7 1Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
8 1For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, 2Peace be within thee.
9 Because 1of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
