To the director. Of the sons of Koʹrah+ upon The Maidens.* A song.
46 God* is for us a refuge and strength,+
A help that is readily to be found during distresses.+
2 That is why we shall not fear, though the earth undergo change+
And though the mountains totter into the heart of the vast sea;+
3 Though its waters be boisterous, foam over,+
Though the mountains rock at its uproar.+ Seʹlah.
4 There is a river the streams of which make the city of God rejoice,+
The holiest grand tabernacle* of the Most High.+
5 God is in the midst of [the city];*+ it will not be made to totter.+
God will help it at the appearance of morning.+
6 The nations became boisterous,+ the kingdoms tottered;
He sounded* with his voice, the earth proceeded to melt.+
7 Jehovah* of armies is with us;+
The God* of Jacob is a secure height for us.+ Seʹlah.
8 Come, YOU people, behold the activities of Jehovah,*+
How he has set astonishing events on the earth.+
9 He is making wars to cease to the extremity* of the earth.+
The bow he breaks apart and does cut the spear in pieces;+
The wagons* he burns in the fire.+
10 “Give in, YOU people, and know that I am God.+
I will be exalted among the nations,+
I will be exalted in the earth.”+
11 Jehovah* of armies is with us;+
The God of Jacob is a secure height for us.+ Seʹlah.
