Psalms 48

48:1 a A Song [and] Psalm for the sons of Korah. Great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the b city of our God, [in] the mountain of his holiness.

(a) Some put this difference between a song and psalm, saying that it is called a song when there is no instrument but the voice, and the song of the psalm is when the instruments begin and the voice follows.
(b) Even though God shows his wonders through all the world, yet he will be chiefly praised in his Church.
48:2 Beautiful for situation, the c joy of the whole earth, [is] mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
(c) Because the word of salvation came there to all who would believe.
48:3 God is known in her palaces for a d refuge.
(d) Unless God is the defence of it, neither situation nor munition can prevail.
48:4 For, lo, the kings were e assembled, they passed by together.
(e) They conspired and went against Gods people.
48:5 They saw [f it, and] so they marvelled; they were troubled, [and] hasted away.
(f) The enemies were afraid at the sight of the city.
48:7 Thou breakest the ships g of Tarshish with an east wind.
(g) That is, of Cilicia or of the Mediterranean sea.
48:8 As we have h heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
(h) That is, of our fathers: so have we proved: or God has performed his promise.
48:10 According to thy name, O God, so [is] thy praise unto the ends of the i earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
(i) In all places where your Name will be heard of, men will praise you when they hear of your marvellous works.
48:11 Let k mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
(k) Let Jerusalem and the cities of Judea rejoice, for your just judgments against your enemies.
48:12 l Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
(l) For in this outward defence and strength Gods blessings also appeared, but the chief is to be referred to Gods favour and secret defence, who never leaves his.
