Zion, the City of Our God

48 A Song. A Psalm of kthe Sons of Korah.

  lGreat is the Lord and greatly to be praised

in mthe city of our God!

His nholy mountain,  obeautiful in elevation,

is pthe joy of all the earth,

Mount Zion, in the far north,

qthe city of the great King.

  Within her citadels God

has made himself known as a fortress.

  For behold, rthe kings assembled;

they came on together.

  As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;

they were in panic; they took to flight.

  sTrembling took hold of them there,

anguish tas of a woman in labor.

  By uthe east wind you vshattered

the ships of wTarshish.

  As we have heard, so have we seen

in the city of the Lord of hosts,

in mthe city of our God,

which God will xestablish forever. Selah

  We have thought on your ysteadfast love, O God,

in the midst of your temple.

  10  As your zname, O God,

so your praise reaches to athe ends of the earth.

Your right hand is filled with righteousness.

  11  Let Mount bZion be glad!

Let bthe daughters of Judah rejoice

because of your judgments!

  12  Walk about Zion, go around her,

number her towers,

  13  consider well her cramparts,

go through her citadels,

dthat you may tell the next generation

  14  that this is God,

our God forever and ever.

He will eguide us forever.1
