Zion, the City of Our God
A Song. A Psalm of a the Sons of Korah.1 b Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised
in c the city of our God!
His d holy mountain, 2 e beautiful in elevation,
is f the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
g the city of the great King.
3Within her citadels God
has made himself known as a fortress.
4 For behold, h the kings assembled;
they came on together.
5As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
they were in panic; they took to flight.
6 i Trembling took hold of them there,
anguish j as of a woman in labor.
7By k the east wind you l shattered
the ships of m Tarshish.
8As we have heard, so have we seen
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in n the city of our God,
which God will o establish forever. Selah
9 We have thought on your p steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10As your q name, O God,
so your praise reaches to r the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11Let Mount s Zion be glad!
Let t the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments!
12 Walk about Zion, go around her,
number her towers,
13consider well her u ramparts,
go through her citadels,
v that you may tell the next generation
14that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
He will w guide us forever. ▼
▼Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death
