|[A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.]||Song of Zion. Psalm 48(v47)|
|Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised |
in the city of our God! His holy mountain,
|beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, |
Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.
|Within her citadels God has shown himself a sure defense.|
|For lo, the kings assembled, |
they came on together.
|As soon as they saw it, they were astounded, |
they were in panic, they took to flight;
|trembling took hold of them there, |
anguish as of a woman in travail.
|By the east wind thou didst shatter the ships of Tarshish. |
|As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, |
in the city of our God, which God establishes for ever. [Selah]
|We have thought on thy steadfast love, O God, |
in the midst of thy temple.
|As thy name, O God, so thy praise reaches to the ends of the earth. |
Thy right hand is filled with victory;
|let Mount Zion be glad! |
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of thy judgments!
|Walk about Zion, go round about her, number her towers,|
|consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels; |
that you may tell the next generation
|that this is God, |
our God for ever and ever.
He will be our guide for ever.
