A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah

Ps 48:1Great is Jehovah, / And much to be praised / In the city of our God, / In His holy mountain.

Ps 48:2Beautiful in elevation, / The joy of the whole earth, / Is Mount Zion, the sides of the north, / The city of the great King.

Ps 48:3God has made Himself known / In her palaces as a high retreat.

Ps 48:4For, behold, the kings have assembled themselves; / They passed by together.

Ps 48:5They saw; therefore they were astounded. / They were dismayed; they hurried off in alarm.

Ps 48:6Trembling seized them there; / Writhing, like that of a woman in labor;

Ps 48:7With an east wind You shattered / The ships of Tarshish.

Ps 48:8As we have heard, / So we have seen / In the city of Jehovah of hosts, / In the city of our God. / God will establish her forever. Selah

Ps 48:9We consider, O God, Your lovingkindness / In the midst of Your temple.

Ps 48:10As Your name is, O God, / So is Your praise / Unto the ends of the earth; / Your right hand is full of righteousness.

Ps 48:11Let Mount Zion rejoice; / Let the daughters of Judah exult / Because of Your judgments.

Ps 48:12Walk about Zion, and go around her; / Count her towers.

Ps 48:13Consider carefully her bulwarks; / Pass between her palaces; / That you may recount it to the generation following.

Ps 48:14For this God is our God forever and ever. / He will guide us even unto death.
