1 Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised, in the city of our God, his sacred mountain.
2 His situation if beautiful. Mount Zion is the joy of the whole earth. The city of the great King is in the far reaches of the north.
3 God is in his citadel. He has made himself known.
4 Behold, the kings have assembled. And they passed by together.
5 They saw and then they were amazed. They were terrified and they fled in fear.
6 Panic seized them there, Anguish, like a woman in childbirth.
7 You break the ships of Tarshish using the east wind.
8 In the city of Jehovah of Hosts we have seen as we have heard. God will establish the city of God forever.
9 We have thought about consideredcompared your loving-kindness, O God, in the midst of your Temple.
10 Like according to your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 May Mount Zion be glad and the cities of Judah rejoice because of your judgments.
12 Walk around Zion. Go around it. Count its towers.
13 Examine its embankments. Inspect its watchtowers. Then you can tell the next generation,
14 This God is our God forever and ever. He will lead us until death.
