48:1 A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.
48:2 Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, in the city of our God, His holy mountain,
48:3 Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth; even mount Zion, the uttermost parts of the north, the city of the great King.
48:4 God in her palaces hath made Himself known for a stronghold.
48:5 For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, they came onward together.
48:6 They saw, straightway they were amazed; they were affrighted, they hasted away.
48:7 Trembling took hold of them there, pangs, as of a woman in travail.
48:8 With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
48:9 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God--God establish it for ever. Selah
48:10 We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy temple.
48:11 As is Thy name, O God, so is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth; Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
48:12 Let mount Zion be glad, let the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of Thy judgments.
48:13 Walk about Zion, and go round about her; count the towers thereof.
48:14 Mark ye well her ramparts, traverse her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
48:15 For such is God, our God, for ever and ever; He will guide us eternally.
