1God is our protection and source of strength.
He is always ready to help us in times of trouble.
2So we are not afraid when the earth quakes
and the mountains fall into the sea.
3We are not afraid when the seas become rough and dark
and the mountains tremble. Selah
4There is a river whose streams bring happiness to God’s city,
to the holy city of God Most High.
5God is in that city, so it will never be destroyed.
He is there to help even before sunrise.
6Nations will shake with fear and kingdoms will fall
when God shouts and makes the earth move.
7The Lord All-Powerful is with us.
The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
8Look at the powerful things the Lord has done.
See the awesome things he has done on earth.
9He stops wars all over the world.
He breaks the soldiers’ bows, shatters their spears, and burns their shields.#46:9 shields Or “chariots.”
10God says, “Stop fighting and know that I am God!
I am the one who defeats the nations;
I am the one who controls the world.”
11The Lord All-Powerful is with us.
The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
