Psalm 48:2-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I

Great is the Lord and highly praised
    in the city of our God:
His holy mountain,
    fairest of heights,
    the joy of all the earth,
    Mount Zion, the heights of Zaphon,[a]
    the city of the great king.

Footnotes:

  1. 48:3 The heights of Zaphon: the mountain abode of the Canaanite storm-god Baal in comparable texts. To speak of Zion as if it were Zaphon was to claim for Israel’s God what Canaanites claimed for Baal. Though topographically speaking Zion is only a hill, viewed religiously it towers over other mountains as the home of the supreme God (cf. Ps 68:16–17).
