詩篇 48

上帝的城——錫安

可拉後裔的詩。

1耶和華何等偉大!
我們的上帝在祂的城中,
在祂的聖山上當大受頌讚。
北面的錫安山雄偉壯麗,
令世人歡喜,
是偉大君王的城。
上帝在城內的宮中,
祂親自做這城的庇護。
世上的君王一同聚集,前來攻城。
他們看見這城後,
大驚失色,慌忙逃跑。
他們被恐懼籠罩,
痛苦如分娩的婦人。
你毀滅他們,
如同東風摧毀他施的船隻。
我們曾經聽說,如今在萬軍之耶和華的城中,
在我們上帝的城中親眼看見:
上帝要堅立這城,直到永遠。(細拉)

上帝啊,我們在你的殿中默想你的慈愛。
10 上帝啊,你秉公行義,
你的名普世皆知,
頌讚你的聲音響徹地極。
11 因你的審判,
錫安山歡喜,
猶大的城邑充滿快樂。
12 你們要繞著錫安數點她的城樓,
13 留意她的城牆,
觀看她的殿宇,
好告訴子孫後代。
14 因為上帝永永遠遠是我們的上帝,
祂必引領我們,
直到我們離世之日。

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 48

Psalm 48

A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.

The Lord is great. He is really worthy of praise.
    Praise him in the city of our God, his holy mountain.
Mount Zion is high and beautiful.
    It brings joy to everyone on earth.
Mount Zion is like the highest parts of Mount Zaphon.
    It is the city of the Great King.
God is there to keep it safe.
    He has shown himself to be like a fort to the city.

Many kings joined forces.
    They entered Israel together.
But when they saw Mount Zion, they were amazed.
    They ran away in terror.
Trembling took hold of them.
    They felt pain like a woman giving birth.
Lord, you destroyed them like ships of Tarshish
    that were torn apart by an east wind.

What we heard we have also seen.
    We have seen it
in the city of the Lord who rules over all.
    We have seen it in the city of our God.
    We have heard and seen that God makes it secure forever.

God, inside your temple
    we think about your faithful love.
10 God, your fame reaches from one end of the earth to the other.
    So people praise you from one end of the earth to the other.
    You use your power to do what is right.
11 Mount Zion is filled with joy.
    The villages of Judah are glad.
    That’s because you judge fairly.

12 Walk all around Zion.
    Count its towers.
13 Think carefully about its outer walls.
    Just look at how safe it is!
    Then you can tell its people that God keeps them safe.
14 This God is our God for ever and ever.
    He will be our guide to the very end.
