American Standard Version
Psalms, Chapter 48

   1: Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised, In the city of our God, in his holy mountain.
   2: Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
   3: God hath made himself known in her palaces for a refuge.
   4: For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together.
   5: They saw it, then were they amazed; They were dismayed, they hasted away.
   6: Trembling took hold of them there, Pain, as of a woman in travail.
   7: With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
   8: As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah
   9: We have thought on thy lovingkindness, O God, In the midst of thy temple.
   10: As is thy name, O God, So is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
   11: Let mount Zion be glad, Let the daughters of Judah rejoice, Because of thy judgments.
   12: Walk about Zion, and go round about her; Number the towers thereof;
   13: Mark ye well her bulwarks; Consider her palaces: That ye may tell it to the generation following.
   14: For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide [even] unto death.
