Psalms 48 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.

48:1Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised,

In the city of our God, in his holy mountain.

48:2Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,

Is mount Zion, on the sides of the north,

The city of the great King.

48:3God hath made himself known in her palaces for a refuge.

48:4For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,

They passed by together.

48:5They saw it, then were they amazed;

They were dismayed, they hasted away.

48:6Trembling took hold of them there,

Pain, as of a woman in travail.

48:7With the east wind

Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.

48:8As we have heard, so have we seen

In the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God:

God will establish it for ever.


48:9We have thought on thy lovingkindness, O God,

In the midst of thy temple.

48:10As is thy name, O God,

So is thy praise unto the ends of the earth:

Thy right hand is full of righteousness.

48:11Let mount Zion be glad,

Let the daughters of Judah rejoice,

Because of thy judgments.

48:12Walk about Zion, and go round about her;

Number the towers thereof;

48:13Mark ye well her bulwarks;

Consider her palaces:

That ye may tell it to the generation following.

48:14For this God is our God for ever and ever:

He will be our guide even unto death.
