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.

Psalms 48
