Psalm for Monday in the First Week of Advent

Psalm 122

1    I was glad when they said to me,*
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."

2    Now our feet are standing*
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

3    Jerusalem is built as a city*
that is at unity with itself.

4    To which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD,*
the assembly of Israel, to praise the Name of the LORD.

5    For there are the thrones of judgment,*
the thrones of the house of David.

6    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:*
"May they prosper who love you.

7    Peace be within your walls*
and quietness within your towers.

8    For my brethren and companions' sake,*
I will pray for your prosperity.

9    Because of the house of the LORD our God,*
I will seek to do you good."
