Psalm 48
Darby Bible Translation

Broken Bondage

(2 Kings 18:13-16; 2 Chronicles 32:1-8; Psalm 46:1-11; Psalm 47:1-9)

1{A Song; a Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.} Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the hill of his holiness.

2Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

3God is known in her palaces as a high fortress.

4For behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together;

5They saw, -- so they marvelled; they were troubled, they fled in consternation:

6Trembling took hold upon them there; anguish, as of a woman in travail.

7With an east wind thou hast broken the ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God doth establish it for ever. Selah.

9We have thought, O God, of thy loving-kindness, in the midst of thy temple.

10According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

11Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.

12Walk about Zion, and go round about her: count the towers thereof;

13Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces: that ye may tell it to the generation following.

14For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide until death.
