The Book of Psalms
1 – I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
2 – Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
3 – Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
4 – For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
5 – Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.
6 – Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee.
7 – Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
8 – For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee.
9 – Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.
