Psalm 121 (Service of the Refectory)
(Psalm 122 – Hebrew Numbering)
I was glad because of them that said unto me: Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet have stood in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded as a city which its dwellers share in concord.
For there the tribes went up, the tribes of the Lord, as a testimony for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
For there are set thrones unto judgement, thrones over the house of David.
Ask now for the things which are for the peace of Jerusalem, and for the prosperity of them that love thee.
Let peace be now in thy strength, and prosperity in thy palaces.
For the sake of my brethren and my neighbours, I spake peace concerning thee.
Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.
