Psalm 46; Psalm 47; Psalm 48; Psalm 49; Psalm 50

1 (45-1) <Unto the end, for the sons of Core, for the hidden.> (45-2) Our God is our refuge and strength: a helper in troubles, which have found us exceedingly. 2 (45-3) Therefore we will not fear, when the earth shall be troubled; and the mountains shall be removed into the heart of the sea. 3 (45-4) Their waters roared and were troubled: the mountains were troubled with his strength. 4 (45-5) The stream of the river maketh the city of God joyful: the most High hath sanctified his own tabernacle. 5 (45-6) God is in the midst thereof, it shall not be moved: God will help it in the morning early. 6 (45-7) Nations were troubled, and kingdoms were bowed down: he uttered his voice, the earth trembled. 7 (45-8) The Lord of armies is with us: the God of Jacob is our protector. 8 (45-9) Come and behold ye the works of the Lord: what wonders he hath done upon earth, 9 (45-10) Making wars to cease even to the end of the earth. He shall destroy the bow, and break the weapons: and the shield he shall burn in the fire. 10 (45-11) Be still and see that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, and I will be exalted in the earth. 11 (45-12) The Lord of armies is with us: the God of Jacob is our protector.
1 (46-1) <Unto the end, for the sons of Core.> (46-2) O clap your hands, all ye nations: shout unto God with the voice of joy, 2 (46-3) For the Lord is high, terrible: a great king over all the earth. 3 (46-4) He hath subdued the people under jus; and the nations under our feet. 4 (46-5) He hath chosen for us his inheritance, the beauty of Jacob which he hath love. 5 (46-6) God is ascended with jubilee, and the Lord with the sound of trumpet. 6 (46-7) Sing praises to our God, sing ye: sing praises to our king, sing ye. 7 (46-8) For God is the king of all the earth: sing ye wisely. 8 (46-9) God shall reign over the nations: God sitteth on his holy throne. 9 (46-10) The princes of the people are gathered together, with the God of Abraham: for the strong gods of the earth are exceedingly exalted.
1 (47-1) <A psalm of a canticle, for the sons of Core, on the second day of the week.> (47-2) Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 2 (47-3) With the joy of the whole earth is mount Sion founded, on the sides of the north, the city of the great king. 3 (47-4) In her houses shall God be known, when he shall protect her. 4 (47-5) For behold the kings of the earth assembled themselves: they gathered together. 5 (47-6) So they saw, and they wondered, they were troubled, they were moved: 6 (47-7) Trembling took hold of them. There were pains as of a woman in labour. 7 (47-8) With a vehement wind thou shalt break in pieces the ships of Tharsis. 8 (47-9) As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God hath founded it for ever. 9 (47-10) We have received thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple. 10 (47-11) According to thy name, O God, so also is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of justice. 11 (47-12) Let mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Juda be glad; because of thy judgments, O Lord. 12 (47-13) Surround Sion, and encompass her: tell lye in her towers. 13 (47-14) Set your hearts on her strength; and distribute her houses, that ye may relate it in another generation. 14 (47-15) For this is God, our God unto eternity, and for ever and ever: he shall rule us for evermore.
1 (48-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for the sons of Core.> (48-2) Hear these things, all ye nations: give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world. 2 (48-3) All you that are earthborn, and you sons of men: both rich and poor together. 3 (48-4) My mouth shall speak wisdom: and the meditation of my heart understanding. 4 (48-5) I will incline my ear to a parable; I will open my proposition on the psaltery. 5 (48-6) Why shall I fear in the evil day? the iniquity of my heel shall encompass me. 6 (48-7) They that trust in their own strength, and glory in the multitude of their riches, 7 (48-8) No brother can redeem, nor shall man redeem: he shall not give to God his ransom, 8 (48-9) Nor the price of the redemption of his soul: and shall labour for ever, 9 (48-10) And shall still live unto the end. 10 (48-11) He shall not see destruction, when he shall see the wise dying: the senseless and the fool shall perish together: And they shall leave their riches to strangers: 11 (48-12) And their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever. Their dwelling places to all generations: they have called their lands by their names. 12 (48-13) And man when he was in honour did not understand; he is compared to senseless beasts, and is become like to them. 13 (48-14) This way of theirs is a stumblingblock to them: and afterwards they shall delight in their mouth. 14 (48-15) They are laid in hell like sheep: death shall feed upon them. And the just shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their help shall decay in hell from their glory. 15 (48-16) But God will redeem my soul from the hand of hell, when he shall receive me. 16 (48-17) Be not thou afraid, when a man shall be made rick, and when the glory of his house shall be increased. 17 (48-18) For when he shall die he shall take nothing away; nor shall his glory descend with him. 18 (48-19) For in his lifetime his soul will be blessed: and he will praise thee when thou shalt do well to him. 19 (48-20) He shall g in to the generations of his fathers: and he shall never see light. 20 (48-21) Man when he was in honour did not understand: he hath been compared to senseless beasts, and made like to them.
1 (49-1) <A psalm for Asaph.> The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth. From the rising of the sun, to the going down thereof: 2 (49-2) Out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty. 3 (49-3) God shall come manifestly: our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. A fire shall burn before him: and a mighty tempest shall be round about him. 4 (49-4) He shall call heaven from above, and the earth, to judge his people. 5 (49-5) Gather ye together his saints to him: who set his covenant before sacrifices. 6 (49-6) And the heavens shall declare his justice: for God is judge. 7 (49-7) Hear, O my people, and I will speak: O Israel, and I will testify to thee: I am God, thy God. 8 (49-8) I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices: and thy burnt offerings are always in my sight. 9 (49-9) I will not take calves out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy flocks. 10 (49-10) For all the beasts of the woods are mine: the cattle on the hills, and the oxen. 11 (49-11) I know all the fowls of the air: and with me is the beauty of the field. 12 (49-12) If I should be hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13 (49-13) Shall I eat the flesh of bullocks? or shall I drink the blood of goats? 14 (49-14) Offer to God the sacrifice of praise: and pay thy vows to the most High. 15 (49-15) And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 16 (49-16) But to the sinner God hath said: Why dost thou declare my justices, and take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 (49-17) Seeing thou hast hated discipline: and hast cast my words behind thee. 18 (49-18) If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker. 19 (49-19) Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, and thy tongue framed deceits. 20 (49-20) Sitting thou didst speak against thy brother, and didst lay a scandal against thy mother’s son: 21 (49-21) These things hast thou done, and I was silent. Thou thoughtest unjustly that I should be like to thee: but I will reprove thee, and set before thy face. 22 (49-22) Understand these things, you that forget God; lest he snatch you away, and there be none to deliver you. 23 (49-23) The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me: and there is the way by which I will shew him the salvation of God.
