PSALMS

3For the Lord is most high, awful;
A great King over all the earth.
4He subdueth peoples under us,
And nations under our feet.
5He chooseth our inheritance for us,
The pride of Jacob whom He loveth. Selah
 
6God is gone up amidst shouting,
The Lord amidst the sound of the horn.
7Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
 
8For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing ye praises in a skilful song.
9God reigneth over the nations;
God sitteth upon His holy throne.
 
10The princes of the peoples are gathered together,
The people of the God of Abraham;
For unto God belong the shields of the earth;
He is greatly exalted.


48 A Song; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.


2Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised,
In the city of our God, His holy mountain,
3Fair in situation, the joy of the whole earth;
Even mount Zion, the uttermost parts of the north,
The city of the great King.
4God in her palaces
Hath made Himself known for a stronghold.
 
5For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,
They came onward together.
6They saw, straightway they were amazed;
They were affrighted, they hasted away.
7Trembling took hold of them there,
Pangs, as of a woman in travail.
8With the east wind
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
9As we have heard, so have we seen
In the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God—
God establish it for ever. Selah
 
10We have thought on Thy lovingkindness, O God,
In the midst of Thy temple.
11As is Thy name, O God,
So is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth;
Thy right hand is full of righteousness.
12Let mount Zion be glad,
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice,
Because of Thy judgments.
13Walk about Zion, and go round about her;
Count the towers thereof.
14Mark ye well her ramparts,
Traverse her palaces;
That ye may tell it to the generation following.
15For such is God, our God, for ever and ever;
He will guide us eternally.


49 For the Leader; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.


2Hear this, all ye peoples;
Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world,
3Both low and high,
Rich and poor together.
4My mouth shall speak wisdom,
And the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.
5I will incline mine ear to a parable;
