48 A Song. A Psalm of kthe Sons of Korah.
1 lGreat is the Lord and greatly to be praised
in mthe city of our God!
is pthe joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
qthe city of the great King.
has made himself known as a fortress.
4 For behold, rthe kings assembled;
they came on together.
they were in panic; they took to flight.
6 sTrembling took hold of them there,
anguish tas of a woman in labor.
the ships of wTarshish.
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in mthe city of our God,
which God will xestablish forever. Selah
9 We have thought on your ysteadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10 As your zname, O God,
so your praise reaches to athe ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 Let Mount bZion be glad!
Let bthe daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments!
number her towers,
13 consider well her cramparts,
go through her citadels,
dthat you may tell the next generation
our God forever and ever.
Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death
