Behold Zion the city of our appointment: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet dwelling, the tent shall not remove; its pegs shall not be pulled up forever, and none of its cords shall be broken.
And my people shall sit in a dwelling of peace, and in habitations of trust and in quiet resting places.
Enlarge the place of thy tent, stretch forth the hangings of thy dwellings; thou shalt not spare; lengthen thy cords and strengthen thy pegs.
But the place which Jehovah your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, to his dwelling shall ye seek, and there do thou come:
Surround ye Zion, and go round about her: recount her towers.
And be will choose the tribe of Judah, mount Zion which he loved.
Song of ascensions. They trusting in Jehovah are as mount Zion; it shall not be moved; remaining forever.
Jehovah shall bless thee from Zion: and look thou upon the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
For this, thus said Jehovah concerning the king of Assur, Thou shalt not come into this city, and thou shalt not shoot an arrow there, and thou shalt not go before it with a shield, and thou shalt not cast a mound against it.
And I say to thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock will I build my church; and the gates of hell shall not overcome her.
He conquering, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and without shall he no more come forth: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from heaven from my God: and my new name.
