1 A Canticle in steps. I rejoiced in the things that were said to me: "We shall go into the house of the Lord."
2 Our feet were standing in your courts, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem has been built as a city, whose participation is unto itself.
4 For to that place, the tribes ascended, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to confess to the name of the Lord.
5 For in that place, seats have sat down in judgment, seats above the house of David.
6 Petition for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem, and for abundance for those who love you.
7 Let peace be in your virtue, and abundance in your towers.
8 For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors, I spoke peace about you.
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I sought good things for you.
1 The word that Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 And in the last days, the mountain of the house of the Lord will be prepared at the summit of the mountains, and it will be exalted above the hills, and all the nations shall flow to it.
3 And many peoples will go, and they will say: "Let us approach and ascend to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob. And he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For the law will go forth from Zion, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And he will judge the nations, and he will rebuke many peoples. And they shall forge their swords into plowshares, and their spears into sickles. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they continue to train for battle.
5 O house of Jacob, let us approach and walk in the light of the Lord.
