16 Why gaze with envy, you mountain peaks,
at the mountain God desired for his abode?
The Lord will dwell there forever!(A)
17 God’s chariots are tens of thousands,
thousands and thousands;(B)
the Lord is among them in the sanctuary[a]
as he was at Sinai.(C)
18 You ascended to the heights, taking away captives;
you received gifts from[b] people,
even from the rebellious,
so that the Lord God might dwell there.[c](D)
