Evening Psalms 100; 63


1   I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
2   Our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

3   Jerusalem — built as a city
that is bound firmly together.
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.
5   For there the thrones for judgment were set up,
the thrones of the house of David.

6   Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May they prosper who love you.
7   Peace be within your walls,
and security within your towers.”
8   For the sake of my relatives and friends
I will say, “Peace be within you.”
9   For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your good.


1   Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
2        Worship the LORD with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.

3   Know that the LORD is God.
It is he that made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4   Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him, bless his name.

5   For the LORD is good;
his steadfast love endures for ever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.
