Psalm 122:1-9 and Isaiah 4:2-6
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.
2 In that day, the seedling of the Lord will have magnificence and glory, and the fruit of the earth will be greatly-esteemed and a source of joy to those who will have been saved out of Israel.
3 And this shall be: all who are left behind in Zion, and who remain in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, all who have been written in life in Jerusalem.
4 Then the Lord will have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and will have washed away the blood of Jerusalem from its midst, by means of a spirit of judgment and a spirit of intense devotion.
5 And the Lord will create, over every place of Mount Zion and wherever he is called upon, a cloud by day and a smoke with the splendor of burning fire by night. For protection will be over every glory.
6 And there will be a tabernacle for shade from the heat in daytime, and for security, and for protection from the whirlwind and from rain.
