Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 121

1    I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
2    Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
3    Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
4    For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
5    Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.
6    Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee.
7    Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
8    For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee.
9    Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.
