I was glad when they said unto me *
We will go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet shall stand in thy gates *
Jerusalem is built as a city *
that is at unity in itself.
For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord *
to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord.
For there is the seat of judgement *
even the seat of the house of David.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem *
they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls *
and plenteousness within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions’ sakes *
I will wish thee prosperity.
Yea, because of the house of the Lord our God *
I will seek to do thee good.
Ad te levavi oculos meos
Unto thee lift I up mine eyes *
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress *
even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.
Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us *
for we are utterly despised.
Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy *
and with the despitefulness of the proud.
