Psalm 48

48
Zion, the City of Our God
A Song. A Psalm of #Ps. 42, title; 46, titlethe Sons of Korah.
1 # Ps. 96:4; 145:3 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised
in #See Ps. 46:4 the city of our God!
His #Ps. 2:6; 87:1; Zech. 8:3; [Isa. 2:3; Mic. 4:1]holy mountain, 2#See Ps. 50:2 beautiful in elevation,
is #Lam. 2:15; [Ezek. 20:6] the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
# Matt. 5:35 the city of the great King.
3Within her citadels God
has made himself known as a fortress.
4For behold, #See 2 Sam. 10:6-19the kings assembled;
they came on together.
5As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
they were in panic; they took to flight.
6 # [Ex. 15:15] Trembling took hold of them there,
anguish #Isa. 13:8; Hos. 13:13as of a woman in labor.
7By #Jer. 18:17 the east wind you #1 Kgs. 22:48; Ezek. 27:26 shattered
the ships of #1 Kgs. 10:22Tarshish.
8As we have heard, so have we seen
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in #[See ver. 1 above] the city of our God,
which God will #Ps. 87:5; Isa. 2:2; Mic. 4:1establish forever. Selah
9We have thought on your #Ps. 26:3; 40:10steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10As your #Ps. 113:3; [Ex. 34:5, 6; Deut. 28:58; Mal. 1:11, 14] name, O God,
so your praise reaches to #See Ps. 22:27the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11Let Mount #Ps. 97:8Zion be glad!
Let #Ps. 97:8the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments!
12Walk about Zion, go around her,
number her towers,
13consider well her #Ps. 122:7 ramparts,
go through her citadels,
# [Ps. 78:4-6] that you may tell the next generation
14that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
He will #Ps. 23:3, 4guide us forever.#48:14 Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death
