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.

詩篇 122

1エルサレムの主の宮に行こうと
誘われた時のうれしさは忘れられません。
2-3 私たちは今、都の雑踏の中に立っています。
神のおきてに従って、
イスラエル中の主の民がここに集まり、
主を礼拝し、感謝と賛美をささげるのです。
都の門のそばでは、
裁判官が人々の論争を裁いています。

エルサレムの平和のために祈ってください。
この都を愛する人々に繁栄がもたらされますように。
エルサレムの城壁のうちに平和がみなぎり、
宮殿は富み栄えますように。
この都に住む友、兄弟のために願います。
主の宮にふさわしい平和で満たされますようにと。
