Psalm 48:6-8 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

            Trembling seized them
                like the trembling that a woman experiences during labor.
    With the east wind you smash the ships of Tarshish.

The things we had only heard about, we have now seen
    in the city of the Lord of Armies,
    in the city of our God.
        God makes Zion stand firm forever. Selah

Psalm 48:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Trembling seized them there,
    pain like that of a woman in labor.
You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish
    shattered by an east wind.

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
