Psalm 46

God Is Our Fortress

1 God is our a refuge and strength,
b A 1 very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the 2 midst of the sea;
3 c Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

4 There is a d river whose streams shall make glad the e city of God,
The holy place of the 3 tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is f in the midst of her, she shall not be 4 moved;
God shall help her, just 5 at the break of dawn.
6 g The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7 The h LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 i He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
j He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
k He burns the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God;
l I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
