Psalm 48Lexham English Bible (LEB)
The Greatness of God in Zion
A song. A psalm of the sons of Korah.
48 Yahweh is great and very worthy of praise
in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.
2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,
is Mount Zion, in the far north,
the city of the great king.
3 God is in her citadels;
he is known as a high stronghold.
4 For see, the kings assembled;
they advanced together.
5 They themselves saw it, so they were astonished.
They were terrified; they ran off.
6 Trembling seized them there—
pain as of a woman in labor.
7 With an east wind
you shatter the ships of Tarshish.
8 As we have heard, so we have seen
in the city of Yahweh of hosts, in the city of our God.
God will establish her forever. Selah
9 We have pondered your loyal love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10 As is your name, O God, so is your praise
to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion rejoice;
let the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments.
12 Walk about Zion and circle it;
count her towers.
13 Consider well her ramparts.
Go through her citadels
so that you can tell the next generation
14 that this is God, our God forever and ever.
He himself will guide us until death.
