The Lord is great and is highly praised in the city of our God. His holy mountain,
rising splendidly, is the joy of the whole earth. Mount Zion on the slopes of the north is the city of the great King.
God is known as a stronghold in its citadels.
Look! The kings assembled; they advanced together.
They looked, and froze with fear; they fled in terror.
Trembling seized them there, agony like that of a woman in labor,
as You wrecked the ships of Tarshish with the east wind.
