The Book of Psalms

Psalm 48

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy mountain.

Beautiful in elevation, The joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.

God is in her palaces; He is known as her refuge.

For behold, the kings assembled, They passed by together.

They saw it, and so they marveled; They were troubled, they hastened away.

Fear took hold of them there, And pain, as of a woman in travail,

As when You break the ships of Tarshish With an east wind.

As we have heard, So we have seen In the city of the LORD of hosts, In the city of our God: God will establish it forever. Selah

We have thought, O God, on Your lovingkindness, In the midst of Your temple.

According to Your name, O God, So is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is full of righteousness.

Let Mount Zion rejoice, Let the daughters of Judah be glad, Because of Your judgments.

Walk about Zion, And go all around her. Count her towers;

Mark well her bulwarks; Consider her palaces; That you may tell it to the generation following.

For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our guide Even to death.
