Psalm 48

The Beauty and Glory of Zion.

A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
In the city of our God, His holy mountain.
Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,
Is Mount Zion in the far north,
The city of the great King.
God, in her palaces,
Has made Himself known as a stronghold.

For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,
They passed by together.
They saw it, then they were amazed;
They were terrified, they [a]fled in alarm.
[b]Panic seized them there,
Anguish, as of a woman in childbirth.
With the east wind
You break the ships of Tarshish.
As we have heard, so have we seen
In the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God;
God will establish her forever. [c]Selah.

We have thought on Your lovingkindness, O God,
In the midst of Your temple.
10 As is Your name, O God,
So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is full of righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion be glad,
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
Because of Your judgments.
12 Walk about Zion and go around her;
Count her towers;
13 Consider her ramparts;
Go through her palaces,
That you may tell it to the next generation.
14 For [d]such is God,
Our God forever and ever;
He will guide us [e]until death.

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。
