I rejoiced with those who said to me,
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."
Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem.
Non enim pro locis res,
sed pro bonis rebus loca amanda sunt –
"Things are not to be loved for the sake of a place,
but places are to be loved
for the sake of their good things."
