Psalm 48

The Glory and Strength of Zion

A Song. A Psalm of the Korahites.
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 defence.


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 labour,
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 for ever.
          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 judgements.


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 for ever and ever.
   He will be our guide for ever.

Psalm 52

Judgement on the Deceitful

To the leader. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came to Saul and said to him, ‘David has come to the house of Ahimelech.’
1 Why do you boast, O mighty one,
   of mischief done against the godly?*
   All day long 2you are plotting destruction.
Your tongue is like a sharp razor,
   you worker of treachery.
3 You love evil more than good,
   and lying more than speaking the truth.
          Selah
4 You love all words that devour,
   O deceitful tongue.


5 But God will break you down for ever;
   he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
   he will uproot you from the land of the living.
          Selah
6 The righteous will see, and fear,
   and will laugh at the evildoer,* saying,
7 ‘See the one who would not take
   refuge in God,
but trusted in abundant riches,
   and sought refuge in wealth!’*


8 But I am like a green olive tree
   in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
   for ever and ever.
9 I will thank you for ever,
   because of what you have done.
In the presence of the faithful
   I will proclaim* your name, for it is good.
