A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Hil Bowman

Good morning, fellow Journeyers! What a great March day! I am writing this in September and patiently waiting for November 8 so we can get this Presidential election behind us. The good news is, since you are reading this, the world did not end after the election like the media leads us to believe.

A little-known fact about me: I have a degree in history and political science from Southern Methodist University. I find it amusing when people say elections are less civil this year. When you look back on American politics, you see that it has always been a blood sport.

THE BEAUTY OF TRUE SECURITY FOR BELIEVERS COMES FROM THE LIVING GOD

Psalm 48

Zion, the City of Our God

A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

48:1 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised
in the city of our God!
His holy mountain, beautiful in elevation,
is the joy of all the earth,
Mount Zion, in the far north,
the city of the great King.
Within her citadels God
has made himself known as a fortress.

For behold, the kings assembled;
they came on together.
As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
they were in panic; they took to flight.
Trembling took hold of them there,
anguish as of a woman in labor.
By the east wind you shattered
the ships of Tarshish.
As we have heard, so have we seen
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
in the city of our God,
which God will establish forever. Selah

We have thought on your steadfast love, O God,
in the midst of your temple.
10 As your name, O God,
so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with righteousness.
11 Let Mount Zion be glad!
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
because of your judgments!

12 Walk about Zion, go around her,
number her towers,
13 consider well her ramparts,
go through her citadels,
that you may tell the next generation
14 that this is God,
our God forever and ever.
He will guide us forever. [1] (ESV)

Footnotes

[1] 48:14 Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death

MEMORY VERSES

he who keeps you will not slumber.
