He Makes Wars Cease
1For the music director, of the sons of Korah, according to Alamoth, a song.
2God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
3Therefore we will not fear, though the earth change, though the mountains topple into the heart of the seas,
4though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at their swelling. Selah
5There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God— the holy dwelling place of Elyon.
6God is in the midst of her, she will not be shaken. God will help her when morning dawns.
7Nations are in uproar, kingdoms totter, He utters His voice, the earth melts!
8Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us. The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah
9Come, see the works of Adonai, who brings devastations on the earth.
10He makes wars cease to the end of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear. He burns chariots with fire.
11“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations. I am exalted in the earth.”
12Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us. The God of Jacob is our strong tower. Selah
