Psalms Chapter 48 - New American Standard Bible

1. GREAT is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, In the city of our God, 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, in her palaces, Has made Himself known as a stronghold.

4. For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together.

5. They saw it, then they were amazed; They were terrified, they [1] fled in alarm.

6. [2] Panic seized them there, Anguish, as of a woman in childbirth.

7. With the east wind You break the ships of Tarshish.

8. As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; God will establish her forever.

9. We have thought on Your lovingkindness, 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 be glad, Let the daughters of Judah rejoice Because of Your judgments.

12. Walk about Zion and go around her; Count her towers;

13. Consider her ramparts; Go through her palaces, That you may tell it to the next generation.

14. For [4] such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will guide us [3] until death.
