Psalm 122:3–4 (ESV)

3 Jerusalem built as a city that is bound firmly together,

The psalmist marvels at the city of Jerusalem when he looks up to see it. It is built together securely and strong (?). It is also the place where the twelve tribes of Israel gather (?).

Jerusalem is a place where there is meant to be peace among men, since this is where the twelve tribes of Israel come to worship. This is where a diverse people come to give thanks to the Lord. This is the city where God’s people seek to follow his decrees.
