Who are the tribes of the LORD?

Psalm 122:4 (ESV)

4 to which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

The tribes of the Lord refers to the twelve tribes of Israel. Each tribe was allotted its own land (Joshua 14:1–5). Jerusalem served as a central place to unite the tribes geographically and in their worship.
