1: (A Song. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.) Great is Yahweh, 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 north sides, The city of the great King. 3: God has shown himself in her citadels as a refuge. 4: For, behold, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together. 5: They saw it, then were they amazed. They were dismayed, They hurried away. 6: Trembling took hold of them there, Pain, as of a woman in travail. 7: With the east wind, you break the ships of Tarshish. 8: As we have heard, so have we seen, In the city of Yahweh of Hosts, in the city of our God. God will establish it forever. Selah. 9: We have thought about your lovingkindness, God, In the midst of your temple. 10: As is your name, God, So is your praise to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness. 11: Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of your judgments. 12: Walk about Zion, and go around her. Number the towers of it; 13: Mark well her bulwarks. Consider her palaces, That you may tell it to the next generation. 14: For this God is our God forever and ever. He will be our guide even to death.
