6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels. ”
This Psalm was cited by one of the small-town churches we drove past in TN near my in-laws; I don't recall reading past the headline verse of 6a before.
As I'm reading this, it seems to take on more metaphorical shape and less a commentary on contemporary Arab-Israeli relations. That peace of Jerusalem is the peace of being in God's presence, since that was where the Holy of Holies was back in David's day. Today, that's a mobile location thanks to the Holy Spirit trashing the curtain on Good Friday.
That was the under-rated good news of Good Friday, lost behind the sacrifice to end them all; God's presence was now on the move. We can head into that citadel when we need it, in a cats-and-dogs rain on I-69 yesterday and any othe place.
