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