Psalms 48

1A song or Psalme committed to the sonnes of Korah. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praysed, in the Citie of our God, euen vpon his holy Mountaine.

2Mount Zion, lying Northwarde, is faire in situation: it is the ioy of the whole earth, and the Citie of the great King.

3In the palaces thereof God is knowen for a refuge.

4For lo, the Kings were gathered, and went together.

5When they sawe it, they marueiled: they were astonied, and suddenly driuen backe.

6Feare came there vpon them, and sorowe, as vpon a woman in trauaile.

7As with an East winde thou breakest the shippes of Tarshish, so were they destroyed.

8As we haue heard, so haue we seene in the citie of the Lord of hostes, in the Citie of our God: God will stablish it for euer. Selah.

9We waite for thy louing kindnes, O God, in the middes of thy Temple.

10O God, according vnto thy Name, so is thy prayse vnto the worlds end: thy right hand is full of righteousnes.

11Let mount Zion reioyce, and the daughters of Iudah be glad, because of thy iudgements.

12Compasse about Zion, and goe round about it, and tell the towres thereof.

13Marke well the wall thereof: beholde her towres, that ye may tell your posteritie.

14For this God is our God for euer and euer: he shall be our guide vnto the death.
