Psalm 48

The City of Our God

A Song. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised,

In the city of our God, His holy mountain.

2Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,

Is Mount Zion in the far north,

The city of the great King.

3God, in her palaces,

Has made Himself known as a stronghold.

4For, behold, the kings assembled themselves,

They passed by together.

5They saw it, then they were astonished;

They were dismayed, they [†]fled in alarm.

6[†]Panic seized them there,

Anguish, as of a woman in childbirth.

7With the east wind

You break the ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so have we seen

In the city of Yahweh of hosts, in the city of our God;

God will establish her forever. [†]Selah.

9We have thought on Your lovingkindness, O God,

In the midst of Your temple.

10As is Your name, O God,

So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;

Your right hand is full of righteousness.

11Let Mount Zion be glad,

Let the daughters of Judah rejoice

Because of Your judgments.

12Walk about Zion and go around her;

Count her towers;

13Consider her ramparts;

Go through her palaces,

That you may recount it to the next generation.

14For this is God,

Our God forever and ever;

He will guide us [†]over death.
