Psalm 48

The Beauty and Glory of Zion.

1 1Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, In the 2city of our God, His 3holy mountain.
2 4Beautiful in elevation, 5the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion in the far north, The 6city of the great King.
3 God, in her palaces, Has made Himself known as a 7stronghold.
4 For, lo, the 8kings assembled themselves, They passed by together.
5 They saw it, then they were amazed; They were 9terrified, they fled in alarm.
6 Panic seized them there, Anguish, as of 10a woman in childbirth.
7 With the 11east wind You 12break the 13ships of Tarshish.
8 As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; God will 14establish her forever *. Selah.
9 We have thought on 15Your lovingkindness, O God, In the midst of Your temple.
10 As is Your 16name, O God, So is Your 17praise to the ends of the earth; Your 18right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let Mount 19Zion be glad, Let the 20daughters of Judah rejoice Because of Your judgments.
12 Walk about Zion and go around her; Count her 21towers;
13 Consider * her 22ramparts; Go through her palaces, That you may 23tell it to the next generation.
14 For such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will 24guide us until death.
