The Book of Psalms

Psalm 47

Magnus Dominus.

God is greatly to be praised for the establishment of his church.


1
A psalm of a canticle, for the sons of Core, on the second day of the week.

2
Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.

3
With the joy of the whole earth is mount Sion founded, on the sides of the north, the city of the great king.

4
In her houses shall God be known, when he shall protect her.

5
For behold the kings of the earth assembled themselves: they gathered together.

6
So they saw, and they wondered, they were troubled, they were moved:

7
Trembling took hold of them. There were pains as of a woman in labour.

8
With a vehement wind thou shalt break in pieces the ships of Tharsis.

9
As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God hath founded it for ever.

10
We have received thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

11
According to thy name, O God, so also is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of justice.

12
Let mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Juda be glad; because of thy judgments, O Lord.

13
Surround Sion, and encompass her: tell lye in her towers.

14
Set your hearts on her strength; and distribute her houses, that ye may relate it in another generation.

15
For this is God, our God unto eternity, and for ever and ever: he shall rule us for evermore.
