¶ A song of a Psalm of the children of KorahGreat is the LORD, and highly to be praised, in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill. The hill of Sion is like a fair plant, whereof all the land rejoiceth: upon the north side lieth the city of the great King. God is well known in her palaces, that he is the defense of the same. For lo, kings are gathered, and gone by together. They marveled, to see such things: they were astonied, and suddenly cast down. Fear came there upon them, and sorrow as upon a woman in her travail. Thou shalt break the ships of the sea, thorow the east wind.
¶ Like as we have heard, so see we in the city of the LORD of Hosts, in the city of our God. God upholdeth the same forever. Selah. We wait for thy loving kindness (O God) in the middest of thy temple. O God, according to thy name, so is thy praise unto the world's end: thy right hand is full of righteousness. Oh let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Iudah be glad, because of thy judgments. Walk about Sion, go round about her, and tell her towers. Mark well her walls, set up her houses, that it may be told them that come after. For this God is our God for ever and ever, and he shall alway be our guide.
