Psalm 122

122:1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”

122:2 Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.

122:3 Jerusalem built as a city that is bound firmly together.

122:4 To it the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

122:5 For there the thrones for judgment were set up, the thrones of the house of David.

122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.

122:7 Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers.”

122:8 For the sake of my relatives and friends I will say, “Peace be within you.”

122:9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.

At our Bible studies on Tuesday and Wednesday this several of the participants noted that there was a feeling of joy in this Psalm; joy in that House of the Lord was the goal of the journey; joy in the company of friends who were traveling together. These are important truths. A worthy goal to travel toward,s matters greatly. Who we are traveling with, matters greatly as well. Both are reasons for thanksgiving.
