Psalm 46
NET Bible

Psalm 46

For the music director; by the Korahites; according to the alamoth style; a song.

1God is our strong refuge;

he is truly our helper in times of trouble.

2For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes,

and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea,

3when its waves crash and foam,

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

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

the special, holy dwelling place of the sovereign One.

5God lives within it, it cannot be moved.

God rescues it at the break of dawn.

6Nations are in uproar, kingdoms are overthrown.

God gives a shout, the earth dissolves.

7The Lord who commands armies is on our side!

The God of Jacob is our protector! (Selah)

8Come! Witness the exploits of the Lord,

who brings devastation to the earth!

9He brings an end to wars throughout the earth;

he shatters the bow and breaks the spear;

he burns the shields with fire.

10He says, “Stop your striving and recognize that I am God!

I will be exalted over the nations! I will be exalted over the earth!”

11The Lord who commands armies is on our side!

The God of Jacob is our protector! (Selah)
