A song of ascents, of David
“I was glad when they said to me.
‘Let us go to the house of Yahweh!’
Our feet have been standing
Within your gates!
Psalm 122 is another of these short psalms or songs of those going up to Jerusalem, but this time it is associated with David. The psalmist or David was happy when the others said that they were going to the house of Yahweh. He with his friends was happy to be standing within the gates of Jerusalem.
