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.
