Psalms 122:1

Context
Psalm 122 1 

A song of ascents, 2  by David.

122:1 I was glad because 3  they said to me,

“We will go to the Lord’s temple.”

1 sn Psalm 122. The psalmist expresses his love for Jerusalem and promises to pray for the city’s security.

2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.

3 tn Heb “in the ones saying to me.” After the verb שָׂמַח (samakh), the preposition בְּ (bet) usually introduces the reason for joy.
