The nations will fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
For the LORD will build up Zion, he will appear in his glory;
he will regard the prayer of the destitute, and will not despise their supplication.
Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the LORD:
that he looked down from his holy height, from heaven the LORD looked at the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners, to set free those who were doomed to die;
that men may declare in Zion the name of the LORD, and in Jerusalem his praise,
when peoples gather together, and kingdoms, to worship the LORD.
