46
For the music leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A song.
1God is our refuge and strength,
a help always near in times of great trouble.
2That’s why we won’t be afraid when the world falls apart,
when the mountains crumble into the center of the sea,
3when its waters roar and rage,
when the mountains shake because of its surging waves. Selah
4There is a river whose streams gladden God’s city,
the holiest dwelling of the Most High.
5God is in that city. It will never crumble.
God will help it when morning dawns.
6Nations roar; kingdoms crumble.
God utters his voice; the earth melts.
7The Lord of heavenly forces is with us!
The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
8Come, see the Lord’s deeds,
what devastation he has imposed on the earth—
9bringing wars to an end in every corner of the world,
breaking the bow and shattering the spear,
burning chariots with fire.
10"That’s enough! Now know that I am God!
I am exalted among all nations; I am exalted throughout the world!"
11The Lord of heavenly forces is with us!
The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
