To the Chief Musician. For the Sons of Korah, on Alamoth. A Song.
46 God—for us is a refuge and strength, A help in distresses, soon found.
2 For this cause will we not fear Though the earth sheweth change, Or the mountains slip into the heart of the seas:
3 The waters thereof roar and foam, The mountains tremble with the swelling thereof. [Selah.
4 A river! whose channels shall gladden the city of God, The Most High hath hallowed his habitation.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be shaken, God will help her by the turnings of the morning.
6 Nations have roared, Kingdoms have tottered, He hath uttered his voice, Earth melteth.
7 Yahweh of hosts is with us, A high tower for us is the God of Jacob. [Selah.
8 Come! view the doings of Yahweh,—Who hath set desolations in the earth;
9 Causing wars to cease unto the end of the earth,—The bow he shivereth, And breaketh in pieces the spear, War-chariots burneth he up with fire.
10 Let be! and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 Yahweh of hosts is with us, A high tower for us is the God of Jacob. [Selah.
