Psalms 122:9

Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek your good.
Read Chapter 122

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
14. "Because of the house of the Lord my God, I have sought good things for thee" (ver. 9). Not on my own account have sought good things, for then I should not seek for thee, but for myself; and so should I not have them, because I should not seek them for thee; but, "Because of the house of the Lord my God," because of the Church, because of the Saints, because of the pilgrims; because of the poor, that they may go up; because we say to them, we will go into the house of the Lord: because of the house of the Lord my God itself, I have sought good things for Thee. These long and needful words gather ye, brethren, eat them, drink them, and grow strong, run, and seize.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
