To the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ According to the Alʹa·moth style.* A song.
46 God is our refuge and strength,+
A help that is readily found in times of distress.+
2 That is why we will not fear, though the earth undergoes change,
Though the mountains topple into the depths of the sea,+
3 Though its waters roar and foam over,+
Though the mountains rock on account of its turbulence. (Selah)
4 There is a river the streams of which make the city of God rejoice,+
The holy grand tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the city;+ it cannot be overthrown.
God will come to its aid at the break of dawn.+
6 The nations were in an uproar, the kingdoms were overthrown;
He raised his voice, and the earth melted.+
7 Jehovah of armies is with us;+
The God of Jacob is our secure refuge.* (Selah)
8 Come and witness the activities of Jehovah,
How he has done astonishing things on the earth.
9 He is bringing an end to wars throughout the earth.+
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
He burns the military wagons* with fire.
10 “Give in 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 refuge for us.+ (Selah)
