Jerusalem Day

Song of Ascents

Psalms 115

Song of Ascents to David: 
I was glad, saying to me, To the house of the Lord we shall go 
Our feet are standing at your gates, Jerusalem. 
Jerusalem is built - as a city, united together. 
Where the tribes, the tribes of God came to testify to Israel: to confess, for the name of the Lord. 
For there sat chairs for judgment: Chairs, for the house of David. 
They asked, Peace be to Jerusalem; His will, your lovers. 
Peace be upon you; Peace, your palaces. 
For my brothers and sisters, I will talk to you. 
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek thee well.
