I was glad in this, when it was said to me:
Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet will stand within your entrance, Jerusalem; Jerusalem, which is built like a city
Which is compact together.
For there the tribes will ascend,
The tribes of the Lord, of the testimony of Israel,
To give thanks to the name of the Lord.
For there will be placed thrones of judgment,
The thrones over the house of David.
Pray that Jerusalem be at peace,
And that there be abundance for those who love you.
May there be peace in your strength,
And abundance in your towers.
For my brothers and my neighbors’ sake
I will ask for peace for you.
For the sake of the house of the Lord my God
I have sought good things for you.
Glory to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, now,
And forever, in the age to come. Amen.
