|<< Psalm 122 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
I was gladdened when they said to me, “We are going to the house of Lord Jehovah”!
2My feet had been standing inside your gates, oh, Jerusalem!
3Jerusalem is a building like a city surrounded with a wall.
4There went up the tribes, the tribes of Lord Jehovah, a testimony to Israel.
5Because there they set up thrones for judgment, to thank The Name of Lord Jehovah, the thrones of the house of David.
6Invoke the peace of Jerusalem; your friends shall be prosperous.
7Let there be peace by your power and prosperity within your walls.
8Because of my brothers and my friends I shall pronounce peace upon you.
9For the sake of the house of Lord Jehovah, our God, I shall seek for your good.
