Psalm 46

2 God is for us a refuge and strength,

 an ever-present help in time of distress:

 3 so we shall not fear though the earth should rock,

 though the mountains quake to the heart of the sea;

 4 even though its waters rage and foam,

 even though the mountains be shaken by its tumult.

The LORD of hosts is with us:

 the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

5 The waters of a river give joy to God’s city,

 the holy place, the dwelling of the Most High.

 6 God is within, it cannot be shaken;

 God will help it at the dawning of the day.

 7 Nations are in tumult, kingdoms are shaken:

 he lifts his voice, the earth melts away.

8 The LORD of hosts is with us:

 the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

9 Come and behold the works of the LORD,

 the awesome deeds he has done on the earth.

 10 He puts an end to wars over all the earth;

 the bow he breaks, the spear he snaps, the shields he burns with fire:

 11 “Be still and know that I am God,

 exalted over nations, exalted over earth!”

12 The LORD of hosts is with us:

 the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
