Psalms 481 A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah. Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised, In the city of our God, in his holy mountain. 2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, The city of the great King. 3 God hath made himself known in her palaces for a ▼ refuge. ▼
▼ 1) Or high tower4 For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They ▼ passed by together. ▼
▼ 1) Or passed away5 They saw it, then were they amazed; They were dismayed, they ▼ hasted away. ▼
▼ 1) Or were stricken with terror6 Trembling took hold of them there, Pain, as of a woman in travail. 7 ▼ With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish. ▼
▼ 1) Or, As with the east wind that breaketh8 As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. [[Selah 9 We have thought on thy lovingkindness, O God, In the midst of thy temple. 10 As is thy name, O God, So is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Thy right hand is full of righteousness. 11 Let mount Zion be glad, Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of thy judgments. 12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her; Number the towers thereof; 13 Mark ye well her bulwarks; ▼ Consider her palaces: That ye may tell it to the generation following. ▼
▼ 1) Or Traverse14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death.
