Psalm 48  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah.
Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised in the city of our Elohim, in the mountain of his holiness.
Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
Elohim is known in her palaces for a refuge.
For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
They saw it, and so they marveled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our Elohim: Elohim will establish it forever. Selah.
We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O Elohim, in the midst of thy temple.
According to thy name, O Elohim, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
For this Elohim is our Elohim forever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
48:1-3 The faithful are in Zion ( through), 4-8a deliverance just seen; 9-14 joyous exhortation to consistency therewith.
