Ps 46:1-11

1For the leader. A song of the Korahites. According to alamoth.*

2God is our refuge and our strength,

an ever-present help in distress.a

3*Thus we do not fear, though earth be shaken

and mountains quake to the depths of the sea,

4Though its waters rage and foam

and mountains totter at its surging.b


5*Streams of the river gladden the city of God,

the holy dwelling of the Most High.c

6God is in its midst; it shall not be shaken;

God will help it at break of day.d

7Though nations rage and kingdoms totter,

he utters his voice and the earth melts.e

8*The LORD of hosts is with us;

our stronghold is the God of Jacob.


9Come and see the works of the LORD,

who has done fearsome deeds on earth;f

10Who stops wars to the ends of the earth,

breaks the bow, splinters the spear,

and burns the shields with fire;g

11h“Be still and know that I am God!

I am exalted among the nations,

exalted on the earth.”
