Psalm 46

God’s Defense of His City and People

To the leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A Song.

1

God is our refuge and strength,

a very present help in trouble.

2

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,

though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;

3

though its waters roar and foam,

though the mountains tremble with its tumult.Selah

 

4

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy habitation of the Most High.

5

God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;

God will help it when the morning dawns.

6

The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;

he utters his voice, the earth melts.

7

The Lord of hosts is with us;

the God of Jacob is our refuge.Selah

 

8

Come, behold the works of the Lord;

see what desolations he has brought on the earth.

9

He 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.”

11

The Lord of hosts is with us;

the God of Jacob is our refuge.Selah
