1  A song of ascents. Of David. I rejoiced when they said to me, “We are going to the House of Hashem.”

א  שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת לְדָוִד שָׂמַחְתִּי בְּאֹמְרִים לִי בֵּית יְהֹוָה נֵלֵךְ׃

2  Our feet stood inside your gates, O Yerushalayim,

ב  עֹמְדוֹת הָיוּ רַגְלֵינוּ בִּשְׁעָרַיִךְ יְרוּשָׁלָ ִם׃

3  Yerushalayim built up, a city knit together,

ג  יְרוּשָׁלַ ִם הַבְּנוּיָה כְּעִיר שֶׁחֻבְּרָה־לָּהּ יַחְדָּו׃

4  to which tribes would make pilgrimage, the tribes of Hashem, —as was enjoined upon Yisrael— to praise the name of Hashem.

ד  שֶׁשָּׁם עָלוּ שְׁבָטִים שִׁבְטֵי־יָהּ עֵדוּת לְיִשְׂרָאֵל לְהֹדוֹת לְשֵׁם יְהֹוָה׃

5  There the thrones of judgment stood, thrones of the house of David.

ה  כִּי שָׁמָּה יָשְׁבוּ כִסְאוֹת לְמִשְׁפָּט כִּסְאוֹת לְבֵית דָּוִיד׃

6  Pray for the well-being of Yerushalayim; “May those who love you be at peace.

sha-a-LU sh’-LOM y’-ru-sha-LA-im yish-LA-yu o-ha-VA-yikh

ו  שַׁאֲלוּ שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלָ ִם יִשְׁלָיוּ אֹהֲבָיִךְ׃

7  May there be well-being within your ramparts, peace in your citadels.”

ז  יְהִי־שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ שַׁלְוָה בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ׃

8  For the sake of my kin and friends, I pray for your well-being;

ח  לְמַעַן אַחַי וְרֵעָי אֲדַבְּרָה־נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ׃

9  for the sake of the house of Hashem our God, I seek your good.

ט  לְמַעַן בֵּית־יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ׃

    How glad I was When unto me,
    They said "let us with one accord.
    Go to the temple of the Lord,
    There to adore His Majesty"
    Jerusalem where blessings wait,
    Our feet are standing in thy gates,
    Here will be bring our supplication.
    Jerusalem is built so well,
    It is the pride of Israel,
    Securely knit are its foundations.

    Let peace be found within your walls,
    And in your palaces repose,
    May blessings be conferred on those,
    Who dwell within your favoured halls.
    For friends and brethren I will say,
    "Let peace abide in you for aye,
    May nought disturb you now or ever"
    By reason of G-d's temple fair
    And for the mercy proffered there,
    I will invoke your good forever. Psalm 122 verses 1 and 3
