1: Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised, in the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 2: Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the north sides, the city of the great King. 3: God has shown himself in her citadels as a refuge. 4: For, behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together. 5: They saw it, then they were amazed. They were dismayed. They hurried away. 6: Trembling took hold of them there, pain, as of a woman in travail. 7: With the east wind, you break the ships of Tarshish. 8: As we have heard, so we have seen, in the city of Yahweh of Armies, in the city of our God. God will establish it forever. Selah. 9: We have thought about your loving kindness, God, in the midst of your temple. 10: As is your name, God, so is your praise to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of righteousness. 11: Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of your judgments. 12: Walk about Zion, and go around her. Number its towers. 13: Mark well her bulwarks. Consider her palaces, that you may tell it to the next generation. 14: For this God is our God forever and ever. He will be our guide even to death. Psalm 49 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.
