New International Reader's Version

Psalm 122

Psalm 122

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

I was very glad when they said to me,
    “Let us go up to the house of the Lord.”
Jerusalem, our feet are standing
    inside your gates.

Jerusalem is built like a city
    where everything is close together.
The tribes of the Lord go there to praise his name.
    They do it in keeping with the law he gave to Israel.
The thrones of the family line of David are there.
    That’s where the people are judged.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Say,
    “May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace inside your walls.
    May your people be kept safe.”
I’m concerned for my family and friends.
    So I say to Jerusalem, “May you enjoy peace.”
I’m concerned about the house of the Lord our God.
    So I pray that things will go well with Jerusalem.

詩篇 122

為耶路撒冷禱告

大衛上聖殿朝聖之詩。

1人們對我說:
「讓我們去耶和華的殿吧!」
我感到歡喜。
耶路撒冷啊,
我們踏進你的城門了。
耶路撒冷是一座整齊堅固的城。
以色列各支派,耶和華的子民,
都遵照祂賜的法度去那裡稱謝祂。
那裡有審判的王座,
就是大衛家的王座。
要為耶路撒冷的和平禱告,
願愛這城的人亨通。
耶路撒冷啊!
願你城內有平安,
你的宮裡有安寧,
為了我的親人和朋友,
我要祈求平安臨到你。
為了我們的上帝耶和華的殿,
我要為你求福祉。
