Psalm 48 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Psalm 48

A song; a psalm by Korah’s descendants.

The Lord is great.
He should be highly praised.
    His holy mountain is in the city of our God.
        Its beautiful peak is the joy of the whole earth.
    Mount Zion is on the northern ridge.
        It is the city of the great king.
God is in its palaces.
He has proved that he is a stronghold.

The kings have gathered.
    They marched together.
        When they saw Mount Zion,
            they were astonished.
            They were terrified and ran away in fear.
            Trembling seized them
                like the trembling that a woman experiences during labor.
    With the east wind you smash the ships of Tarshish.

The things we had only heard about, we have now seen
    in the city of the Lord of Armies,
    in the city of our God.
        God makes Zion stand firm forever. Selah
Inside your temple we carefully reflect on your mercy, O God.
10 Like your name, O God,
    your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion be glad
    and the cities of Judah rejoice
        because of your judgments.

12 Walk around Zion.
    Go around it.
        Count its towers.
13             Examine its embankments.
                Walk through its palaces.
Then you can tell the next generation,
14     “This God is our God forever and ever.
        He will lead us beyond death.”
