PSALM 46 God the Refuge of His People. For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to Alamoth. A Song. 46 1God is our refuge and strength, [V]A very present help in [W]trouble. 2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the [X]sea; 3Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. [Y]Selah. 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 [Z]when morning dawns. 6The [A]nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He [B]raised 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, [C]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“[D]Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the [E]nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” 11The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
