I will praise Him!

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

I rejoiced with those who said to me,
    “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”
Our feet are standing

    in your gates, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built like a city
    that is closely compacted together.
That is where the tribes go up—
    the tribes of the LORD
to praise the name of the LORD
    according to the statute given to Israel.
There stand the thrones for judgment,
    the thrones of the house of David.

(Psalm 122:1-5, NIV)
