Psalm of David
1 I was glad when they said to me: »Let us go to the house of Jehovah.«
2 Our feet will stand inside your gates, Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is built to be a city where the people are united.
4 All of Jehovahs tribes go to that city because it is a law in Israel to give thanks to the name of Jehovah.
5 The court of justice sits there. It consists of princes who are David's descendants.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you prosper.
7 May there be peace inside your walls and prosperity in your palaces.
8 For the sake of my brothers and friends let me say: »May it go well for you!«
9 For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God, I will seek what is good for you.
