Psalm 48
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1A SONG. A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH. Great [is] YHWH, and greatly praised, || In the city of our God—His holy hill.

2Beautiful [for] elevation, || A joy of all the land, [is] Mount Zion, || The sides of the north, the city of [the] great King.

3God is known for a tower in her high places.

4For behold, the kings met, they passed by together,

5They have seen—so they have marveled, || They have been troubled, they were hurried away.

6Trembling has seized them there, || Pain, as of a travailing woman.

7By an east wind You shatter ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so we have seen, || In the city of YHWH of hosts, || In the city of our God, God establishes her for all time. Selah.

9We have thought, O God, of Your kindness, || In the midst of Your temple,

10As [is] Your Name, O God, so [is] Your praise, || Over the ends of the earth, || Righteousness has filled Your right hand.

11Mount Zion rejoices, || The daughters of Judah are joyful, || For the sake of Your judgments.

12Surround Zion, and go around her, count her towers,

13Set your heart to her bulwark, || Consider her high places, || So that you recount to a later generation,

14That this God [is] our God—For all time and forever, || He leads us over death!
