Psalm 48, as translated by Alec Motyer:
A Hymn; A Song belonging to the Sons of Korah
Yahweh is great,
and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God,
the mountain of his holiness.
Beautiful in elevation,
the joy of all the earth the mountain of Zion,
the very apex of Zaphon,
the city of the great king.
God is in its places;
known to be top-security.
The kings gathered, they came by, all together;
They saw for themselves just so! –
they were astonished; they were terrified;
they betook themselves to fight.
Trembling gripped them there,
writhing like a girl in travail.
By an east wind you shatter ships of Tarnish.
Just like we have heard,
so we have seen,
in the city of our God.
God will establish it for ever! (Selah)
In the midst of your temple, O God,
we have contemplated your committed love.
Just as your name is, O God,
just so is your praise, to the ends of the earth.
Let mount Zion rejoice;
let the daughters of Judah exult,
on account of your judgments.
Go around Zion; encompass it;
count it towers;
Set your own heart on its battlements;
review its places,
in order that you may give an account to subsequent generations,
because this is God, our God for ever and ever.
It is he who will guide us unto dying.
