Discussion for Psalms 122:6

  • Venkat on Psalms 122:6
    Does the word Jerusalem in Ps.122:6 has a different meaning, which does not reflect the country of Jerusalem directly...?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 122:6
    I understand that Jerusalem in that Scripture speaks about the city itself. It's meaning is generally understood to be "Foundation of Peace". Jerusalem has had a long history but in biblical days, it was occupied by the Jebusites until the time of King David who managed to capture the city by stealth (see 2 Samuel chapter 5).
  • Joy on Psalms 122:6

    We are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem for they shall prosper that love her. The Lord surrounds Jerusalem as the mountains with His protection. Even so come Lord Jesus.
