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.

New Living Translation

Psalm 122

Psalm 122

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.

I was glad when they said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
And now here we are,
    standing inside your gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is a well-built city;
    its seamless walls cannot be breached.
All the tribes of Israel—the Lord’s people—
    make their pilgrimage here.
They come to give thanks to the name of the Lord,
    as the law requires of Israel.
Here stand the thrones where judgment is given,
    the thrones of the dynasty of David.

Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
    May all who love this city prosper.
O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls
    and prosperity in your palaces.
For the sake of my family and friends, I will say,
    “May you have peace.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.
