The Beauty and Glory of Zion.

A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1 aGreat is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,

In the bcity of our God, His choly mountain.

2 aBeautiful in elevation, bthe joy of the whole earth,

Is Mount Zion in the far north,

The ccity of the great King.

3 God, in her palaces,

Has made Himself known as a astronghold.

4 For, lo, the akings assembled themselves,

They passed by together.

5 They saw it, then they were amazed;

They were aterrified, they 1fled in alarm.

6 1Panic seized them there,

Anguish, as of aa woman in childbirth.

7 With the aeast wind

You bbreak the cships of Tarshish.

8 As we have heard, so have we seen

In the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God;

God will aestablish her forever.


9 We have thought on aYour lovingkindness, O God,

In the midst of Your temple.

10 As is Your aname, O God,

So is Your bpraise to the ends of the earth;

Your cright hand is full of righteousness.

11 Let Mount aZion be glad,

Let the adaughters of Judah rejoice

Because of Your judgments.

12 Walk about Zion and go around her;

Count her atowers;

13 Consider her aramparts;

Go through her palaces,

That you may btell it to the next generation.

14 For 1such is God,

Our God forever and ever;

He will aguide us 2until death.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
