Psalms 48:12-14

_ _ The call to survey Zion, or the Church, as a fortified city, is designed to suggest “how well our God secures His fold.” This security is perpetual, and its pledge is His guidance through this life.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Tell — He bids them mark well her towers, bulwarks, and palaces, with thankfulness to God, when they should find upon enquiry, that not one of them were demolished.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 48:12

(l) Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.

(l) For in this outward defence and strength God's blessings also appeared, but the chief is to be referred to God's favour and secret defence, who never leaves his.

Walk:

Nehemiah 12:31-40 Then I brought up the princes of Judah upon the wall, and appointed two great [companies of them that gave] thanks, [whereof one] went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate: ... So stood the two [companies of them that gave] thanks in the house of God, and I, and the half of the rulers with me:
Matthew 24:1-2 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to [him] for to shew him the buildings of the temple. ... And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

tell:

Isaiah 33:18-20 Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where [is] the scribe? where [is] the receiver? where [is] he that counted the towers? ... Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [that] shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

commentary: Psalm 48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. Mount Zion the city of the great King ,the city is the congregation of Jesus and he is the great king. "Just as we have heard, So, have we seen." They heard about it and they are seeing by vision prophetically describing a future nation in the earth. Psalms 48"THE KINGS They saw [it, and] so they marvelled; they were troubled, [and] hasted away".These kings see this future nation. These same kings are spoken of in the book of psalms chapter 2 :"The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.4He that sits in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak to them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.6Yet have I set my king on my holy hill of Zion.This is Jesus ruling from mount ZION in the heavens over this country on earth. Psalms 48" They heard about it and they are seeing by vision prophetically describing a future nation in the earth.Psalms 48:12 Walk about ZION and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.(The phrase go round about 5362 :THE MEANING IS: A primitive root; to strike with more or less violence : GO AROUND AND TELL OF HER STRICKEN TOWERS! 5] Isaiah30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.They are marking out this distant country letting them see who they are because this country does not know who they are.SEE THE KING JESUS IN THE DISTANT LAND: Psalm 48 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.2Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. Psalm 48:12Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof(THE STRICKEN TOWERS THEREOF !) Isaiah 33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. 33:18 Thine heart shall meditate terror.Where [is] the scribe? where [is] the receiver? where [is] he that counted the towers?THIS IS 911 THE TWIN TOWERS! ( God is talking to people the ones in the western days(last days) specifically reading this prophecy recorded in Isaiah 30, 31,and 33 a prophecy about towers crashing. In the second clause of Isaiah 33:18 where[is] the receiver?is in reference to Isaiah 30 This is the chapter that first describes the towers falling .In the verse 30:19 The verse indicates the receiver of the prophecy is Jerusalem in the middle east but in this clause they are questioning saying :where[is] the receiver? This is the verse that they have questioned .30:19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. Do you see? The second clause they say where[is] the receiver? that is to say, who is the receiver of prophecy of the towers crashing and of the third clause they say where is the prophet when he counted the towers falling.This is questioning whether the prophet was in Jerusalem in the middle east. Either they can not remember what they read or they question what they read. And they do question! These people can not be in the middle east for if it happened in the middle east there would be no question! These people are in the land that has had towers crash and that is why they question! And God replies to them:You shall not see a barbarous people, a people of a deep speech incomprehensible,of a stammering tongue which can't be understood. What you just read is in form a similitude meaning dont look around for someone else it is you! The implication is clear that the land that the towers crashed in is not in the middle east! the very next thing God says is :Envision Zion the city of our congregating, your eyes shall see Jerusalem a habitation at ease,a tent that will not remove, and they shall not ever travel(this is not the middle east !) THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) The congregation of CHRIST on the sides of the north. Isaiah 65:1 I am inquired of by them that asked not [for me]; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name. Deuteronomy 32:21: I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. BABYLON HAS HIS EYE ON THE UNITED STATE OF AMERICA " I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north" Isaiah 14:For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:(THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA)
