A song to mount Zion
A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised
Ps. 46:4In the city of our God, in the Is. 2:2,3;Mic. 4:1;Zech. 8:3mountain of his holiness.
Ps. 50:2;Jer. 3:19Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion,
Is. 14:13On the sides of the north, Mat. 5:35the city of the great King.
God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
For lo, 2 Sam. 10:6, 14,16,18,19the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
They saw it, and so they marvelled;
They were troubled, and hasted away.
Fear Ex. 15:15took hold upon them there,
And pain, as of a woman in travail.
Thou Ezek. 27:26breakest the ships of Tarshish Jer. 18:17with an east wind.
As we have heard, so have we seen
In the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God:
God will establish it for ever. Selah.
We have thought of Ps. 26:3thy lovingkindness, O God,
In the midst of thy temple.
According to Deut. 28:58thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth:
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
Let mount Zion rejoice,
Let the daughters of Judah be glad,
Because of thy judgments.
Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces;
That ye may tell it to the generation following.
For this God is our God for ever and ever:
He will be our guide even unto death.
The folly of trusting riches
