Psalm 122 or Psalm 34:1-8
In all that he did he gave thanks
to the Holy One, the Most High, proclaiming his glory;
he sang praise with all his heart,
and he loved his Maker.
He placed singers before the altar,
to make sweet melody with their voices.
He gave beauty to the festivals
and arranged their times throughout the year,
while they praised God's holy name,
and the sanctuary resounded from early morning.
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."
within your gates, O Jerusalem.
that is at unity with itself;
the tribes of the LORD, *
the assembly of Israel,
to praise the Name of the LORD.
the thrones of the house of David.
"May they prosper who love you.
and quietness within your towers.
I pray for your prosperity.
I will seek to do you good."
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
let the humble hear and rejoice.
let us exalt his Name together.
and delivered me out of all my terror.
and let not your faces be ashamed.
and saved me from all my troubles.
and he will deliver them.
happy are they who trust in him!
Jesus said to his disciples, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you-- that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled." Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things."
