The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 47  

47:1 A psalm of a canticle, for the sons of Core, on the second day of the week.

47:1 Psalmus cantici Filiis Core secunda sabbati

47:2 Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.

47:2 Magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis in civitate Dei nostri in monte sancto eius

47:3 With the joy of the whole earth is mount Sion founded, on the sides of the north, the city of the great king.

47:3 Fundatur exultatione universae terrae montes Sion latera aquilonis civitas regis magni

47:4 In her houses shall God be known, when he shall protect her.

47:4 Deus in domibus eius cognoscitur cum suscipiet eam

47:5 For behold the kings of the earth assembled themselves: they gathered together.

47:5 Quoniam ecce reges congregati sunt convenerunt in unum

47:6 So they saw, and they wondered, they were troubled, they were moved:

47:6 Ipsi videntes sic admirati sunt conturbati sunt commoti sunt

47:7 trembling took hold of them. There were pains as of a woman in labour.

47:7 Tremor adprehendit eos ibi dolores ut parturientis

47:8 With a vehement wind thou shalt break in pieces the ships of Tharsis.

47:8 In spiritu vehementi conteres naves Tharsis

47:9 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.

47:9 Sicut audivimus sic vidimus in civitate Domini virtutum in civitate Dei nostri Deus fundavit eam in aeternum

47:10 We have received thy mercy, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

47:10 Suscepimus Deus misericordiam tuam in medio templi tui

47:11 According to thy name, O God, so also is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of justice.

47:11 Secundum nomen tuum Deus sic et laus tua in fines terrae iustitia plena est dextera tua

47:12 Let mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Juda be glad; because of thy judgments, O Lord.

47:12 Laetetur mons Sion exultent filiae Iudaeae propter iudicia tua Domine

47:13 Surround Sion, and encompass her: tell ye in her towers.

47:13 Circumdate Sion et conplectimini eam narrate in turribus eius

47:14 Set your hearts on her strength; and distribute her houses, that ye may relate it in another generation.

47:14 Ponite corda vestra in virtute eius et distribuite domus eius ut enarretis in progeniem alteram

47:15 For this is God, our God unto eternity, and for ever and ever: he shall rule us for evermore.

47:15 Quoniam hic est Deus Deus noster in aeternum et in saeculum saeculi ipse reget nos in saecula
