48 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.] שִׁיר מִזְמֹור לִבְנֵי־קֹרַח׃ Song of Zion. Psalm 48(v47)
Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God! His holy mountain,
גָּדֹול יְהוָה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ
הַר־קָדְשֹׁו׃
 
beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.
יְפֵה נֹוף מְשֹׂושׂ כָּל־הָאָרֶץ
הַר־צִיֹּון יַרְכְּתֵי צָפֹון קִרְיַת מֶלֶךְ רָב׃
 
Within her citadels God has shown himself a sure defense.
אֱלֹהִים בְּאַרְמְנֹותֶיהָ נֹודַע לְמִשְׂגָּב׃  
For lo, the kings assembled,
they came on together.
כִּי־הִנֵּה הַמְּלָכִים נֹועֲדוּ עָבְרוּ יַחְדָּו׃  
As soon as they saw it, they were astounded,
they were in panic, they took to flight;
הֵמָּה רָאוּ כֵּן תָּמָהוּ נִבְהֲלוּ נֶחְפָּזוּ׃  
trembling took hold of them there,
anguish as of a woman in travail.
רְעָדָה אֲחָזָתַם שָׁם חִיל כַּיֹּולֵדָה׃  
By the east wind thou didst shatter the ships of Tarshish.
בְּרוּחַ קָדִים תְּשַׁבֵּר אֳנִיֹּות תַּרְשִׁישׁ׃  
As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts,
in the city of our God, which God establishes for ever. [Selah]
כַּאֲשֶׁר שָׁמַעְנוּ כֵּן רָאִינוּ בְּעִיר־יְהוָה צְבָאֹות בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ
אֱלֹהִים יְכֹונְנֶהָ עַד־עֹולָם סֶלָה׃
 
We have thought on thy steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of thy temple.
דִּמִּינוּ אֱלֹהִים חַסְדֶּךָ בְּקֶרֶב הֵיכָלֶךָ׃  
As thy name, O God, so thy praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Thy right hand is filled with victory;
כְּשִׁמְךָ אֱלֹהִים כֵּן תְּהִלָּתְךָ עַל־קַצְוֵי־אֶרֶץ
צֶדֶק מָלְאָה יְמִינֶךָ׃
 
let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of thy judgments!
יִשְׂמַח הַר־צִיֹּון
תָּגֵלְנָה בְּנֹות יְהוּדָה לְמַעַן מִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ׃
 
Walk about Zion, go round about her, number her towers,
סֹבּוּ צִיֹּון וְהַקִּיפוּהָ סִפְרוּ מִגְדָּלֶיהָ׃  
consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels;
that you may tell the next generation
שִׁיתוּ לִבְּכֶם לְחֵילָה פַּסְּגוּ אַרְמְנֹותֶיהָ
לְמַעַן תְּסַפְּרוּ לְדֹור אַחֲרֹון׃
 
that this is God,
our God for ever and ever.
He will be our guide for ever.
כִּי זֶה אֱלֹהִים
אֱלֹהֵינוּ עֹולָם וָעֶד הוּא יְנַהֲגֵנוּ עַל־מוּת׃
 
      << | Psalms: 48 | >>
