1: Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised, In the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 2: Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, The city of the great King. 3: God hath made himself known in her palaces for a refuge. 4: For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together. 5: They saw it, then were they amazed; They were dismayed, they hasted away. 6: Trembling took hold of them there, Pain, as of a woman in travail. 7: With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish. 8: As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah 9: We have thought on thy lovingkindness, O God, In the midst of thy temple. 10: As is thy name, O God, So is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Thy right hand is full of righteousness. 11: Let mount Zion be glad, Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of thy judgments. 12: Walk about Zion, and go round about her; Number the towers thereof; 13: Mark ye well her bulwarks; Consider her palaces: That ye may tell it to the generation following. 14: For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide [even] unto death.
