Psalms Chapter 48 |
1A song. A psalm of the Korahites.
2The Lord is great and much acclaimed
in the city of our God,
His holy mountain—
3fair-crested, joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, summit of Zaphon,
city of the great king.
4Through its citadels, God has made Himself known as a haven.
5See, the kings joined forces;
they advanced together.
6At the mere sight of it they were stunned,
they were terrified, they panicked;
7they were seized there with a trembling,
like a woman in the throes of labor,
8as the Tarshish fleet was wrecked
in an easterly gale.
9The likes of what we heard we have now witnessed
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in the city of our God—
may God preserve it forever! Selah.
10In Your temple, God,
we meditate upon Your faithful care.
11The praise of You, God, like Your name,
reaches to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is filled with beneficence.
12Let Mount Zion rejoice!
Let the towns of Judah exult,
because of Your judgments.
13Walk around Zion,
count its towers,
14take note of its ramparts;
go through its citadels,
that you may recount it to a future age.
15For God—He is our God forever;
He will lead us evermore.
