Psalm 48
JPS Tanakh 1917
1A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.

2Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised,
In the city of our God, His holy mountain,
3Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth;
Even mount Zion, the uttermost parts of the north,
The city of the great King.
4God in her palaces
Hath made Himself known for a stronghold.

5For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,
They came onward together.
6They saw, straightway they were amazed;
They were affrighted, they hasted away.
7Trembling took hold of them there,
Pangs, as of a woman in travail.
8With the east wind
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
9As we have heard, so have we seen
In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God—
God establish it for ever.

10We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God,
In the midst of Thy temple.
11As is Thy name, O God,
So is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth;
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
12Let mount Zion be glad,
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice,
Because of Thy judgments.
13Walk about Zion, and go round about her;
Count the towers thereof.
14Mark ye well her ramparts,
Traverse her palaces;
That ye may tell it to the generation following.
15For such is God, our God, for ever and ever;
He will guide us eternally.
