Zion, the City of Our God

A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

1Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised

in the city of our God!

His holy mountain, 2beautiful in elevation,

is the joy of all the earth,

Mount Zion, in the far north,

the city of the great King.

3Within her citadels God

has made himself known as a fortress.

4For behold, the kings assembled;

they came on together.

5As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;

they were in panic; they took to flight.

6Trembling took hold of them there,

anguish as of a woman in labor.

7By the east wind you shattered

the ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so have we seen

in the city of the Lord of hosts,

in the city of our God,

which God will establish forever. Selah

9We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,

in the midst of your temple.

10As your name, O God,

so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.

Your right hand is filled with righteousness.

11Let Mount Zion be glad!

Let the daughters of Judah rejoice

because of your judgments!

12Walk about Zion, go around her,

number her towers,

13consider well her ramparts,

go through her citadels,

that you may tell the next generation

14that this is God,

our God forever and ever.

He will guide us forever.1


  • 1 48:14 Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death
