A Song of a Psalm. Of the sons of Korah
1 Great is Jehovah and to be praised greatly In the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, The mountain of Zion, on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
3 God in her palaces is known for a defense.
4 For behold! the kings assembled, They passed away together.
5 They themselves saw, so they marveled; They were frightened, they fled precipitately,
6 Fear seized upon them there, Pain as of one in travail.
7 By the east wind thou breakest in pieces the ships of Tarshish.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of Jehovah of Hosts, In the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah
9 We have waited, O God! for thy mercy In the midst of thy temple,
10 As is thy name, O God! So is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Of righteousness full is thy right hand.
11 Rejoice shall Mount Zion, Exult shall the daughters of Judah, Because of thy judgments.
12 Encompass Zion, and walk round about her. Number the towers thereof,
13 Set your heart to her walls, Exalt her towers, That ye may make report to the generations to come.
14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death.
