48 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, His holy mountain. 2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion in the far north, The city of the great King. 3 In its palaces, God has made Himself known as a stronghold.
4 For, behold, the kings arrived, They passed by together. 5 They saw it, then they were amazed; They were terrified, they fled in a hurry. 6 [a]Panic seized them there, Anguish, as that of a woman in childbirth. 7 With the east wind You smash the ships of Tarshish. 8 Just as we have heard, so have we seen In the city of the Lord of armies, in the city of our God; God will establish her forever. Selah
9 We have thought over Your goodness, God, In the midst of Your temple. 10 As is Your name, God, So is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is full of righteousness. 11 Mount Zion shall be glad, The daughters of Judah shall rejoice Because of Your judgments. 12 Walk around Zion and encircle her; Count her towers; 13 Consider her ramparts; Go through her palaces, So that you may tell of her to the next generation. 14 For [b]such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will lead us [c]until death.
