Tehillim / Psalms 122, ספר תהילים קכב, Part 2 Humbling Our Lives to seek first His Kingdom

by

In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 122:1-9, David says, כִּי שָׁמָּה | יָשְׁבוּ כִסְאוֹת לְמִשְׁפָּט כִּסְאוֹת לְבֵית דָּוִיד: ו שַׁאֲלוּ שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלָם יִשְׁלָיוּ אֹהֲבָיִךְ: 122:5 For there thrones were set for judgment, The thrones of the house of David. 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love you. (NASB) Jerusalem is described as a place of Judgment and also a place of joy. Tehillim / Psalms 122 concludes saying, הז יְהִי-שָׁלוֹם בְּחֵילֵךְ שַׁלְוָה בְּאַרְמְנוֹתָיִךְ: ח לְמַעַן-אַחַי וְרֵעָי אֲדַבְּרָה-נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ: ט לְמַעַן בֵּית-יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ: 122:7 ‘May peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.’ 122:8 For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, ‘May peace be within you.’ 122:9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good. (NASB) This holy city is again called the place of peace and prosperity. This psalm is not speaking of the prosperity gospel, but of finding joy in the Lord and in His promises.  Read more here: Tehillim 122-Part1-and-2
