Ps 46

God's Defense of His City and People To the leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A Song. 1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;3though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. Selah 4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.5God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns.6The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.7The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah 8Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations he has brought on the earth.9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.10“Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”11The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
