Read Psalm 122
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the Lord! 2 Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together, 4 to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord. 5 There thrones for judgment were set, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you! 7 Peace be within your walls and security within your towers! 8 For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, Peace be within you! 9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.
