Fundamenta ejus.

Her foundations are upon the | holy hills:

* the LORD loveth the gates of Sion more than | all the •dwellings• of Jacob.

2 Very excellent things are | spoken• of thee,

* thou | city of God.

3 I will make mention of | Egypt• and Babylon,

* among | them that know me.

4 Behold, Philistia also; and Tyre, with | Ethiopia;

* lo, in | Sion were they born.

5 Yea, of Sion it shall be reported, this one and that one were | born in her;

* and the Most | High shall stablish her.

6 The LORD shall record it, when he writeth | up the peoples;

* lo, in | Sion were they born.

7 The singers also and trumpeters | shall make answer:

* All my fresh | springs are in thee.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
