Psalm 48
The Scriptures (ISR 1998)

1Great is יהוה, and greatly to be praised In the city of our Elohim, His set-apart mountain.

2Pretty on high, The joy of all the earth, Is Mount Tsiyon on the sides of the north, The city of the great Sovereign.

3Elohim is in her citadels; He is known as her refuge.

4For look, the sovereigns met, They passed by together.

5They saw, so they marvelled; They were alarmed, they hastened away.

6Trembling took hold of them there, Pain, as of a woman in labour,

7With an east wind You break the ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so we have seen In the city of יהוה of hosts, In the city of our Elohim, Elohim establishes her forever. Selah.

9We have thought, O Elohim, of Your kindness, In the midst of Your Hĕḵal.

10According to Your Name, O Elohim, So is Your praise to the ends of the earth; Your right hand is filled with righteousness.

11Let Mount Tsiyon rejoice, Let the daughters of Yehuḏah exult, Because of Your right-rulings.

12Walk about Tsiyon, And go all around her. Count her towers;

13Set your heart upon her rampart; Go through her citadels; So that you report it to the coming generation.

14For this Elohim is our Elohim, Forever and ever; He Himself leads us, Even to death.

Psalm 47
