[1] I was glad when they said to me, “Let’s go to Yahweh’s house!”
[2] Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem!
[3] Jerusalem is built as a city that is compact together,
[4] where the tribes go up, even Yah’s tribes, according to an ordinance for Israel, to give thanks to Yahweh’s name.
[5] For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of David’s house.
[6] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper.
[7] Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.
[8] For my brothers’ and companions’ sakes, I will now say, “Peace be within you.”
[9] For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good.
