Psalms 48

PSALM 48

Mount Zion the City of the Great King

A psalm; an ode to the sons of Korah; second Sabbath.

Great is the  lord, and [2praiseworthy 1exceedingly] in the city of our God, in [2mountain 1his holy]. With good root, a leap for joy of all the earth -- mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the [2king 1great]. God [2in 3her palaces 1is known], whenever he should assist her. For behold, the kings of the earth are being brought together; they went through together. They in seeing thus wondered; they were disturbed; they were shaken. Trembling took hold of them there -- pangs as a woman giving birth. By [2wind 1a violent] you shall break the boats of Tarshish. Just as we heard, so also we behold in the city of the  lord of the forces, in the city of our God. God founded it into the eon. We undertook, O God, of your mercy in the midst of your people. 10 According to your name, O God, so also is the praise of you unto the ends of the earth. [3of righteousness 2is full 1Your right hand]. 11 Be glad, mount Zion! and exult daughters of Judea! because of your judgments, O  lord. 12 Encircle Zion, and take hold of her! Describe concerning her towers! 13 Put your hearts for her force! and share about her palaces! so that you may describe to [2generation 1another]. 14 For this is our God into the eon, and into the eon of the eon; he shall tend us into the eons.
