Amplified Bible

Psalm 122

Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.

A Song of [a]Ascents. Of David.

1I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

Our feet are standing
Within your gates, O Jerusalem,

Jerusalem, that is built
As a city that is firmly joined together;

To which the [twelve] tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord,
[As was decreed as] an ordinance for Israel,
To give thanks to the name of the Lord.

For there the thrones of judgment were set,
The thrones of the house of David.


Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you [holy city].

“May peace be within your walls
And prosperity within your palaces.”

For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
I will now say, “May peace be within you.”

For the sake of the house of the Lord our God [which is Jerusalem],
I will seek your (the city’s) good.

Salme 122

Lovprisning af og bøn for Jerusalem

1En valfartssang af David.

Jeg blev så glad, da jeg hørte,
    at vi skulle drage til Herrens hus.
Nu står vi så endelig her,
    i porten ind til Jerusalem.
Jerusalem er en fantastisk by,
    tæt pakket med huse og mennesker.[a]
Her mødes Israels stammer, Herrens eget folk,
    for at takke Herren ifølge Toraens forskrifter.
Her står Davids trone,
    herfra regerer hans kongeslægt.
Bed om fred i Jerusalem.
    Må det gå godt for dem, der elsker byen.
Må der være fred inden for murene
    og tryghed i tårnene.
For slægt og venners skyld
    ønsker jeg fred over Jerusalem.
For Herrens helligdoms skyld
    beder jeg om tryghed for byen.
