1: A Song, a Psalm, by sons of Korah. Great [is] Jehovah, and praised greatly, In the city of our God -- His holy hill. 2: Beautiful [for] elevation, A joy of all the land, [is] Mount Zion, The sides of the north, the city of a great king. 3: God in her high places is known for a tower. 4: For, lo, the kings met, they passed by together, 5: They have seen -- so they have marvelled, They have been troubled, they were hastened away. 6: Trembling hath seized them there, Pain, as of a travailing woman. 7: By an east wind Thou shiverest ships of Tarshish. 8: As we have heard, so we have seen, In the city of Jehovah of hosts, In the city of our God, God doth establish her -- to the age. Selah. 9: We have thought, O God, of Thy kindness, In the midst of Thy temple, 10: As [is] Thy name, O God, so [is] Thy praise, Over the ends of the earth, Righteousness hath filled Thy right hand. 11: Rejoice doth Mount Zion, The daughters of Judah are joyful, For the sake of Thy judgments. 12: Compass Zion, and go round her, count her towers, 13: Set your heart to her bulwark, Consider her high places, So that ye recount to a later generation, 14: That this God [is] our God -- To the age and for ever, He -- he doth lead us over death!
