Psalm 48

Psalms: 48

Song of Zion.  Psalm 48(v47)

A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

1Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God! His holy mountain,
2beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.
3Within her citadels God has shown himself a sure defense.

4For lo, the kings assembled,
they came on together.
5As soon as they saw it, they were astounded,
they were in panic, they took to flight;
6trembling took hold of them there,
anguish as of a woman in travail.
7By the east wind thou didst shatter the ships of Tarshish.
8As 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

9We have thought on thy steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of thy temple.
10As thy name, O God, so thy praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Thy right hand is filled with victory;
11let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of thy judgments!

12Walk about Zion, go round about her, number her towers,
13consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels;
that you may tell the next generation 14that this is God,
our God for ever and ever.
He will be our guide for ever.
