Psalm 48:1-14 NET

Psalm 48:1-14 NET [1] The LORD is great and certainly worthy of praise in the city of our God, his holy hill. [2] It is lofty and pleasing to look at, a source of joy to the whole earth. Mount Zion resembles the peaks of Zaphon; it is the city of the great king. [3] God is in its fortresses; he reveals himself as its defender. [4] For look, the kings assemble; they advance together. [5] As soon as they see, they are shocked; they are terrified, they quickly retreat. [6] Look at them shake uncontrollably, like a woman writhing in childbirth. [7] With an east wind you shatter the large ships. [8] We heard about God's mighty deeds; now we have seen them, in the city of the LORD of Heaven's Armies, in the city of our God. God makes it permanently secure. (Selah) [9] Within your temple we reflect on your loyal love, O God. [10] The praise you receive as far away as the ends of the earth is worthy of your reputation, O God. You execute justice. [11] Mount Zion rejoices; the towns of Judah are happy, because of your acts of judgment. [12] Walk around Zion. Encircle it. Count its towers. [13] Consider its defenses. Walk through its fortresses, so you can tell the next generation about it. [14] For God, our God, is our defender forever. He guides us.
