Bible: Psalm 46

Psalm 46 1 

46:1 For the music director; by the Korahites; according to the alamoth style; 2  a song.

God is our strong refuge; 3 

he is truly our helper in times of trouble. 4 

46:2 For this reason we do not fear 5  when the earth shakes, 6 

and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea, 7 

46:3 when its waves 8  crash 9  and foam,

and the mountains shake 10  before the surging sea. 11  (Selah)

46:4 The river’s channels bring joy to the city of God, 12 

the special, holy dwelling place of 13  the sovereign One. 14 

46:5 God lives within it, 15  it cannot be moved. 16 

God rescues it 17  at the break of dawn. 18 

46:6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms are overthrown. 19 

God 20  gives a shout, 21  the earth dissolves. 22 

46:7 The Lord who commands armies is on our side! 23 

The God of Jacob 24  is our protector! 25  (Selah)

46:8 Come! Witness the exploits 26  of the Lord,

who brings devastation to the earth! 27 

46:9 He brings an end to wars throughout the earth; 28 

he shatters 29  the bow and breaks 30  the spear;

he burns 31  the shields with fire. 32 

46:10 He says, 33  “Stop your striving and recognize 34  that I am God!

I will be exalted 35  over 36  the nations! I will be exalted over 37  the earth!

46:11 The Lord who commands armies is on our side! 38 

The God of Jacob 39  is our protector! 40  (Selah)
