I

2Great is the LORD and highly praised in the city of our God: d Pss 96, 4; 145, 3 . The holy mountain, 3fairest of heights, the joy of all the earth, e Ps 50, 2; LAm 2, 15 . Mount Zion, the heights of Zaphon, f Is 14, 13 . * the city of the great king.

9What we had heard we now see* in the city of the LORD of hosts, In the city of our God, founded to last forever.   Selah 10O God, within your temple we ponder your steadfast love. 11Like your name, O God, your praise reaches the ends of the earth. i Mal 1, 11 . Your right hand is fully victorious. 12Mount Zion is glad! The cities of Judah rejoice because of your saving deeds! j Ps 97, 8 .
