Project 119: Psalm 122, 123, & 124

 |  Project 119

Morning: Psalm 122 (ESV):

Let Us Go to the House of the LORD

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1 I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”

2 Our feet have been standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem!


3 Jerusalem—built as a city

that is bound firmly together,

4 to which the tribes go up,

the tribes of the LORD,

as was decreed for[fn] Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

5 There thrones for judgment were set,

the thrones of the house of David.


6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

“May they be secure who love you!

7 Peace be within your walls

and security within your towers!”

8 For my brothers and companions’ sake

I will say, “Peace be within you!”

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,

I will seek your good.

Evening: Psalm 123 & Psalm 124 

Psalm 123 (ESV):

Our Eyes Look to the LORD Our God

A Song of Ascents.

1 To you I lift up my eyes,

O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

2 Behold, as the eyes of servants

look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a maidservant

to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the LORD our God,

till he has mercy upon us.


3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,

for we have had more than enough of contempt.

4 Our soul has had more than enough

of the scorn of those who are at ease,

of the contempt of the proud.


Psalm 124 (ESV):

Our Help Is in the Name of the LORD

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side—

let Israel now say—

2 if it had not been the LORD who was on our side

when people rose up against us,

3 then they would have swallowed us up alive,

when their anger was kindled against us;

4 then the flood would have swept us away,

the torrent would have gone over us;

5 then over us would have gone

the raging waters.


6 Blessed be the LORD,

who has not given us

as prey to their teeth!

7 We have escaped like a bird

from the snare of the fowlers;

the snare is broken,

and we have escaped!


8 Our help is in the name of the LORD,

who made heaven and earth.
