Peace of Jerusalem

Psalm 122


1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

Verse 6-7 tell us how to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Verse 8 gives us another reason to pray for Jerusalem's peace. Vs. 9 brings a conclusion that few evangelical preachers of this day understand: Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

L-rd, Establish your people in the Land of Jerusalem.  Plant them.

Pondering: There will not be peace in Jerusalem until the people in Jerusalem worship Hashem, worship the God of Israel.  There is no room for peace, where Allah or the Pope is worshiped.  The God of Israel will not share His Glory with another.
