1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. 2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. 3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4 For, behold, the kings were assembled, they passed by together. 5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled and hasted away. 6 Fear took hold upon them there and pain as of a woman in travail. 7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of the hosts, in the city of our God; God will establish it for ever. Selah.
9 We have conceived according to thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple. 10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth; thy right hand is full of righteousness. 11 Let Mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad because of thy judgments.
