Psalm 48

CEBA 1 In the city belonging to our God, the LORD is great and so worthy of praise! His holy mountain NIV 1 Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain. CEBA 2 is a beautiful summit, the joy of the whole world. Mount Zion, in the far north, is the city of the great king. NIV 2 Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth, like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. CEBA 3 God is in its fortifications, revealing himself as a place of safety. NIV 3 God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress. CEBA 4 Look: the kings assembled themselves, advancing all together— NIV 4 When the kings joined forces, when they advanced together, CEBA 5 when they saw it, they were stunned; they panicked and ran away frightened. NIV 5 they saw her and were astounded; they fled in terror. CEBA 6 Trembling took hold of them right there— like a woman giving birth, NIV 6 Trembling seized them there, pain like that of a woman in labor. CEBA 7 or like the east wind when it smashes the ships of Tarshish. NIV 7 You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish shattered by an east wind. CEBA 8 Just like we had heard, now we've seen it for ourselves in the city of the LORD of heavenly forces, in the city of our God. May God make it secure forever! Selah NIV 8 As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of the LORD Almighty, in the city of our God: God makes her secure forever. CEBA 9 We dwell on your faithful love, God, in your temple. NIV 9 Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. CEBA 10 Your praise, God, just like your reputation, extends to the far corners of the earth. Your strong hand is filled with righteousness. NIV 10 Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. CEBA 11 Let Mount Zion be glad; let the towns of Judah rejoice because of your acts of justice! NIV 11 Mount Zion rejoices, the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments. CEBA 12 Walk around Zion; go all the way around it; count its towers. NIV 12 Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, CEBA 13 Examine its defenses closely; tour its fortifications so that you may tell future generations: NIV 13 consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation. CEBA 14 "This is God, our God, forever and always! He is the one who will lead us even to the very end." NIV 14 For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
