The Holy Bible – Knox Translation
The Book of Psalms
(A song of ascents. Of David.)
Welcome sound, when I heard them saying, We will go into the Lord’s house!
Within thy gates, Jerusalem, our feet stand at last;
Jerusalem, built as a city should be built that is one in fellowship.
There the tribes meet, the Lord’s own tribes, to give praise, as Israel is ever bound, to the Lord’s name;
there the thrones are set for judgement, thrones for the house of David.
Pray for all that brings Jerusalem peace! May all who love thee dwell at ease!
Let there be peace within thy ramparts, ease in thy strongholds!
For love of my brethren and my familiar friends, peace is still my prayer for thee;
remembering the house of the Lord our God, for thy happiness I plead.
