1Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.2Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mountZion, on the sides of the north, the city of the greatKing.3God is known in her palaces for a refuge.4
For, lo, the kings were assembled , they passed bytogether.5
They saw it, and so they marvelled ; they were troubled , and hasted away .
6Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail .
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an eastwind.8
As we have heard , so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God:God will establish it forever.Selah.9
We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, 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 mountZionrejoice , let the daughters of Judah be glad , because of thy judgments.12
Walk aboutZion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13Marka ye well her bulwarks,consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generationfollowing.14
For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
