Chapter 47

1


 

  A psalm of a canticle, for the sons of Core, on the second day of the week.  

 

 


2


 

  Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.  

 

 


3


 

  With the joy of the whole earth is mount Sion founded, on the sides of the north, the city of the great king.  

 

 


4


 

  In her houses shall God be known, when he shall protect her.  

 

 


5


 

  For behold the kings of the earth assembled themselves: they gathered together.  

 

 


6


 

  So they saw, and they wondered, they were troubled, they were moved:  

 

 


7


 

  trembling took hold of them. There were pains as of a woman in labour.  

 

 


8


 

  With a vehement wind thou shalt break in pieces the ships of Tharsis.  

 

 


9


 

  As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God hath founded it for ever.  

 

 


10


 

  We have received thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple.  

 

 


11


 

  According to thy name, O God, so also is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of justice.  

 

 


12


 

  Let mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Juda be glad; because of thy judgments, O Lord.  

 

 


13


 

  Surround Sion, and encompass her: tell ye in her towers.  

 

 


14


 

  Set your hearts on her strength; and distribute her houses, that ye may relate it in another generation.  

 

 


15


 

  For this is God, our God unto eternity, and for ever and ever: he shall rule us for evermore.
