Psalm 48:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Beautiful Zion

48 A poetic song, for the prophetic singers of Korah’s clan
There are so many reasons to describe God as wonderful!
    So many reasons to praise him with unlimited praise![a]
Zion-City is his home; he lives on his holy mountain—
    high and glorious, joy filled and favored.
    Zion-Mountain looms in the farthest reaches of the north,[b]
    the city of our incomparable King!
This is his divine abode, an impenetrable citadel,
    for he is known to dwell in the highest place.


  1. Psalm 48:1 This psalm was written to commemorate the defeat of the Assyrian army in the days of King Hezekiah.
  2. Psalm 48:2 Or “the sides of the north,” a metaphor to describe God’s heavenly home. See also Isa. 14:13.
