Psalm 48 New American Standard Bible

The Beauty and Glory of Zion

48 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 fled in alarm . 6  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 e . Selah . 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 e her ramparts ; Go through her palaces , That you may tell it to the next generation . 14  For such is God , Our God forever and ever ; He will guide us until death .
