Let Us Go to the House of the Lord


Psalm 122
(English Standard Version)
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,
    4as 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.
