1 Yahweh [is] great and very worthy of praise in the city of our God, in his {holy mountain}. 2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, [is] {Mount Zion}, {in the far north}, [the] city of [the] great king. 3 God [is] in her citadels; he is known as a [high] stronghold.
4 For see, the kings assembled; they advanced together. 5 {They themselves saw} [it], so they were astonished. They were terrified; they ran off. 6 Trembling seized them there-- pain as of a woman in labor. 7 With an east wind you shatter the ships of Tarshish.
8 As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of Yahweh of hosts, in the city of our God. God will establish her forever. Selah
9 We have pondered your loyal love, O God, in the midst of your temple. 10 As [is] your name, O God, so [is] your praise to [the] ends of [the] earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness. 11 Let {Mount Zion} rejoice; let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of your judgments.
12 Walk about Zion and circle it; count her towers. 13 {Consider well} her ramparts. Go through her citadels so that you can tell [the] next generation 14 that this [is] God, our God forever and ever. {He himself} will guide us until death.
