46
(A special song for the people of Korah and for the music leader.)
God is our mighty fortress
1God is our mighty fortress,
always ready to help
in times of trouble.
2And so, we won't be afraid!
Let the earth tremble
and the mountains tumble
into the deepest sea.
3Let the ocean roar and foam,
and its raging waves
shake the mountains.
4A river and its streams
bring joy to the city,
which is the sacred home
of God Most High.
5God is in that city,
and it won't be shaken.
He will help it at dawn.
6Nations rage! Kingdoms fall!
But at the voice of God
the earth itself melts.
7The Lord All-Powerful
is with us.
The God of Jacob
is our fortress.
8Come! See the fearsome things
the Lord has done on earth.
9God brings wars to an end
all over the world.
He breaks the arrows,
shatters the spears,
and burns the shields.#46.9 shields: Or “chariots”.
10Our God says, “Calm down,
and learn that I am God!
All nations on earth
will honour me.”
11The Lord All-Powerful
is with us.
The God of Jacob
is our fortress.
