The peace of Jerusalem
A Song of degrees of David.
I was glad when they said unto me,
Is. 2:3;Zech. 8:21Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet shall stand
Within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded
As a city that is See 2 Sam. 5:9compact together:
Ex. 23:17;Deut. 16:16Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,
Unto Ex. 16:34the testimony of Israel,
To give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
Deut. 17:8;2 Chr. 19:8For there are set thrones of judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.
Ps. 51:18Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
They shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls,
And prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions' sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because of the house of the Lord our God
I will Neh. 2:10seek thy good.
A song of confidence in God
