1: (A Song; a Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.) Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the hill of his holiness. 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 is known in her palaces as a high fortress. 4: For behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together; 5: They saw, -- so they marvelled; they were troubled, they fled in consternation: 6: Trembling took hold upon them there; anguish, as of a woman in travail. 7: With an east wind thou hast broken 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 doth establish it for ever. Selah. 9: We have thought, O God, of thy loving-kindness, in the midst of thy temple. 10: According to 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 rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments. 12: Walk about Zion, and go round about her: count 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 until death.
