They shall prosper that love thee
Updated: Mar 20, 2022
'They' is plural and 'thee' is singular. However, a quick look on Google reveals that the word 'they' is being bastardized today for the sake of gender identity... for those who wish to identify as 'they'. It is being propagated now that 'they' is an acceptable SINGULAR form of identification.
Nevertheless, as far as the bible is concerned 'they' is plural.
Psalms 122:6 says: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they (plural) shall prosper that love thee (the Lord).
This verse has gone the way of Ephesians 2:8-9 where people think the gift of God is faith. No, the gift of God is salvation. (Romans 6:23).
People think this is saying YOU (singular) shall prosper that pray for and love the Jews (plural).
THEY is (plural) Jerusalem (and believers in general). THEE is singular. THEE is God NOT Jerusalem.
This is saying THEY (JERUSALEM aka believers) shall prosper that love THEE (GOD).
God is a jealous God. God's name is jealous He will prosper those who love HIM. He is not going to prosper YOU because you love and pray for Jerusalem. That is a ridiculous notion.
