Psalm 48 (WEBP)

[1] Great is Yahweh, 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 north sides, the city of the great King.
[3] God has shown himself in her citadels as a refuge.
[4] For, behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together.
[5] They saw it, then they were amazed. They were dismayed. They hurried away.
[6] Trembling took hold of them there, pain, as of a woman in travail.
[7] With the east wind, you break the ships of Tarshish.
[8] As we have heard, so we have seen, in the city of Yahweh of Armies, in the city of our God. God will establish it forever. Selah.
[9] We have thought about your loving kindness, God, in the middle of your temple.
[10] As is your name, 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. Number its towers.
[13] Notice her bulwarks. Consider her palaces, that you may tell it to the next generation.
[14] For this God is our God forever and ever. He will be our guide even to death.

[1] «A Song H7892 [and] Psalm H4210 for the sons H1121 of Korah H7141.» Great H1419 [is] the LORD H3068, and greatly H3966 to be praised H1984 (8794) in the city H5892 of our God H430, [in] the mountain H2022 of his holiness H6944.
[2] Beautiful H3303 for situation H5131, the joy H4885 of the whole earth H776, [is] mount H2022 Zion H6726, [on] the sides H3411 of the north H6828, the city H7151 of the great H7227 King H4428.
[3] God H430 is known H3045 (8738) in her palaces H759 for a refuge H4869.
[4] For, lo, the kings H4428 were assembled H3259 (8738), they passed by H5674 (8804) together H3162.
[5] They saw H7200 (8804) [it, and] so they marvelled H8539 (8804); they were troubled H926 (8738), [and] hasted away H2648 (8738).
[6] Fear H7461 took hold H270 (8804) upon them there, [and] pain H2427, as of a woman in travail H3205 (8802).
[7] Thou breakest H7665 (8762) the ships H591 of Tarshish H8659 with an east H6921 wind H7307.
[8] As we have heard H8085 (8804), so have we seen H7200 (8804) in the city H5892 of the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, in the city H5892 of our God H430: God H430 will establish H3559 (8787) it for H5704 ever H5769. Selah H5542.
[9] We have thought H1819 (8765) of thy lovingkindness H2617, O God H430, in the midst H7130 of thy temple H1964.
[10] According to thy name H8034, O God H430, so [is] thy praise H8416 unto the ends H7099 of the earth H776: thy right hand H3225 is full H4390 (8804) of righteousness H6664.
[11] Let mount H2022 Zion H6726 rejoice H8055 (8799), let the daughters H1323 of Judah H3063 be glad H1523 (8799), because of thy judgments H4941.
[12] Walk about H5437 (8798) Zion H6726, and go round about H5362 (8685) her: tell H5608 (8798) the towers H4026 thereof.
[13] Mark H7896 (8798) ye well H3820 her bulwarks H2430, consider H6448 (8761) her palaces H759; that ye may tell H5608 (8762) [it] to the generation H1755 following H314.
[14] For this God H430 [is] our God H430 for ever H5769 and ever H5703: he will be our guide H5090 (8762) [even] unto death H4192.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 48 (YLT)

[1] Great is Jehovah, and praised greatly, In the city of our God-His holy hill.
[2] Beautiful for elevation, A joy of all the land, is Mount Zion, The sides of the north, the city of a great king.
[3] God in her high places is known for a tower.
[4] For, lo, the kings met, they passed by together,
[5] They have seen-so they have marvelled, They have been troubled, they were hastened away.
[6] Trembling hath seized them there, Pain, as of a travailing woman.
[7] By an east wind Thou shiverest ships of Tarshish.
[8] As we have heard, so we have seen, In the city of Jehovah of hosts, In the city of our God, God doth establish her-to the age. Selah.
[9] We have thought, O God, of Thy kindness, In the midst of Thy temple,
[10] As is Thy name, O God, so is Thy praise, Over the ends of the earth, Righteousness hath filled Thy right hand.
[11] Rejoice doth Mount Zion, The daughters of Judah are joyful, For the sake of Thy judgments.
[12] Compass Zion, and go round her, count her towers,
[13] Set your heart to her bulwark, Consider her high places, So that ye recount to a later generation,
[14] That this God is our God- To the age and for ever, He-he doth lead us over death!
