I will worship towards Thy holy temple,and praise Thy Name,
Because of Thy loving mercy and truth:
The Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains.
And shall be exalted above the hills.
And all the nations shall flow unto it.
And many people shall say: "Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob.
And He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths.
For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
Hallelujah. Amen.
