Psalms - Chapter 48 | New King James Version

  • 1. A Song. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy mountain.
  • 2. Beautiful in elevation, The joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
  • 3. God is in her palaces; He is known as her refuge.
  • 4. For behold, the kings assembled, They passed by together.
  • 5. They saw it, and so they marveled; They were troubled, they hastened away.
  • 6. Fear took hold of them there, And pain, as of a woman in birth pangs,
  • 7. As when You break the ships of Tarshish With an east wind.
  • 8. As we have heard, So we have seen In the city of the Lord of hosts, In the city of our God: God will establish it forever. Selah
  • 9. We have thought, O God, on Your lovingkindness, In the midst of Your temple.
  • 10. According to 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 rejoice, Let the daughters of Judah be glad, Because of Your judgments.
  • 12. Walk about Zion, And go all around her. Count her towers;
  • 13. Mark well her bulwarks; Consider her palaces; That you may tell it to the generation following.
  • 14. For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our guide Even to death. {cf2super [39]}
