God the Refuge of His People.
For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, #Possibly for soprano voicesset to Alamoth. A Song.
1God is our refuge and strength,
# Or Abundantly available for help A very present help in #Or tight placestrouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the #Lit seassea;
3Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. #Selah may mean: Pause, Crescendo or Musical interludeSelah.
4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
5God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will help her #Lit at the turning of the morningwhen morning dawns.
6The #Or Gentilesnations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He #Lit gave forthraised His voice, the earth melted.
7The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
8Come, behold the works of the Lord,
# Or Which He has wrought as desolations Who has wrought desolations in the earth.
9He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
10#Or Let go, relaxCease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the #Or Gentilesnations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
11The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
