Psalm of the Day – June 24, 2020 (Psalm 48)

1   Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised 
          in the city of our God. 
     His holy mountain, 2beautiful in elevation, 
          is the joy of all the earth, 
     Mount Zion, in the far north, 
          the city of the great King. 
3   Within its citadels God 
          has shown himself a sure defense.

4   Then the kings assembled, 
          they came on together. 
5   As soon as they saw it, they were astounded; 
          they were in panic, they took to flight; 
6   trembling took hold of them there, 
          pains as of a woman in labor, 
7   as when an east wind shatters 
          the ships of Tarshish. 
8   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 forever. Selah

9   We ponder your steadfast love, O God, 
          in the midst of your temple. 
10  Your name, O God, like your praise, 
          reaches to the ends of the earth. 
     Your right hand is filled with victory. 
11       Let Mount Zion be glad, 
     let the towns of Judah rejoice 
          because of your judgments.

12 Walk about Zion, go all around it,
count its towers,
13 consider well its ramparts;
go through its citadels,
that you may tell the next generation
14 that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
He will be our guide forever.
