诗篇 48

上帝的城——锡安

可拉后裔的诗。

1耶和华何等伟大!
我们的上帝在祂的城中,
在祂的圣山上当大受颂赞。
北面的锡安山雄伟壮丽,
令世人欢喜,
是伟大君王的城。
上帝在城内的宫中,
祂亲自做这城的庇护。
世上的君王一同聚集,前来攻城。
他们看见这城后,
大惊失色,慌忙逃跑。
他们被恐惧笼罩,
痛苦如分娩的妇人。
你毁灭他们,
如同东风摧毁他施的船只。
我们曾经听说,如今在万军之耶和华的城中,
在我们上帝的城中亲眼看见:
上帝要坚立这城,直到永远。(细拉)

上帝啊,我们在你的殿中默想你的慈爱。
10 上帝啊,你秉公行义,
你的名普世皆知,
颂赞你的声音响彻地极。
11 因你的审判,
锡安山欢喜,
犹大的城邑充满快乐。
12 你们要绕着锡安数点她的城楼,
13 留意她的城墙,
观看她的殿宇,
好告诉子孙后代。
14 因为上帝永永远远是我们的上帝,
祂必引领我们,
直到我们离世之日。

New Living Translation

Psalm 48

Psalm 48

A song. A psalm of the descendants of Korah.

How great is the Lord,
    how deserving of praise,
in the city of our God,
    which sits on his holy mountain!
It is high and magnificent;
    the whole earth rejoices to see it!
Mount Zion, the holy mountain,[a]
    is the city of the great King!
God himself is in Jerusalem’s towers,
    revealing himself as its defender.

The kings of the earth joined forces
    and advanced against the city.
But when they saw it, they were stunned;
    they were terrified and ran away.
They were gripped with terror
    and writhed in pain like a woman in labor.
You destroyed them like the mighty ships of Tarshish
    shattered by a powerful east wind.

We had heard of the city’s glory,
    but now we have seen it ourselves—
    the city of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
It is the city of our God;
    he will make it safe forever. Interlude

O God, we meditate on your unfailing love
    as we worship in your Temple.
10 As your name deserves, O God,
    you will be praised to the ends of the earth.
    Your strong right hand is filled with victory.
11 Let the people on Mount Zion rejoice.
    Let all the towns of Judah be glad
    because of your justice.

12 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem.[b]
    Walk around and count the many towers.
13 Take note of the fortified walls,
    and tour all the citadels,
that you may describe them
    to future generations.
14 For that is what God is like.
    He is our God forever and ever,
    and he will guide us until we die.
