Psalm 48

Psalm 48[a]

A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah.

Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise,
    in the city of our God, his holy mountain.

Beautiful in its loftiness,
    the joy of the whole earth,
like the heights of Zaphon[b] is Mount Zion,
    the city of the Great King.
God is in her citadels;
    he has shown himself to be her fortress.

When the kings joined forces,
    when they advanced together,
they saw her and were astounded;
    they fled in terror.
Trembling seized them there,
    pain like that of a woman in labor.
You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish
    shattered by an east wind.

As we have heard,
    so we have seen
in the city of the Lord Almighty,
    in the city of our God:
God makes her secure
    forever.[c]

Within your temple, O God,
    we meditate on your unfailing love.
10 Like your name, O God,
    your praise reaches to the ends of the earth;
    your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 Mount Zion rejoices,
    the villages of Judah are glad
    because of your judgments.

12 Walk about Zion, go around her,
    count her towers,
13 consider well her ramparts,
    view her citadels,
that you may tell of them
    to the next generation.

14 For this God is our God for ever and ever;
    he will be our guide even to the end.

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。
