[Psalm 47] (48)

[Psalm 47] (48)

{47:1} A Canticle Psalm. To the sons of Korah, on the second Sabbath.

{47:2} The Lord is great and exceedingly praiseworthy, in the city of our God, on his holy mountain.

{47:3} Mount Zion is being founded with the exultation of the whole earth, on the north side, the city of the great king.

{47:4} In her houses, God will be known, since he will support her.

{47:5} For behold, the kings of the earth have been gathered together; they have convened as one.

{47:6} Such did they see, and they were astonished: they were disturbed, they were moved.

{47:7} Trembling took hold of them. In that place, their pains were that of a woman in labor.

{47:8} With a vehement spirit, you will crush the ships of Tarshish.

{47:9} As we have heard, so we have seen, in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God. God has founded it in eternity.

{47:10} We have received your mercy, O God, in the midst of your temple.

{47:11} According to your name, O God, so does your praise reach to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is full of justice.

{47:12} Let mount Zion rejoice, and let the daughters of Judah exult, because of your judgments, O Lord.

{47:13} Encircle Zion and embrace her. Discourse in her towers.

{47:14} Set your hearts on her virtue. And distribute her houses, so that you may discourse of it in another generation.

{47:15} For this is God, our God, in eternity and forever and ever. He will rule us forever.
