Psalm 46

For the music leader. Of the Korahites. According to Alamoth. A song.

1 God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble.
2 That's why we won't be afraid when the world falls apart, when the mountains crumble into the center of the sea,
3 when its waters roar and rage, when the mountains shake because of its surging waves. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams gladden God's city, the holiest dwelling of the Most High.
5 God is in that city. It will never crumble. God will help it when morning dawns.
6 Nations roar; kingdoms crumble. God utters his voice; the earth melts.
7 The LORD of heavenly forces is with us! The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
8 Come, see the LORD's deeds, what devastation he has imposed on the earth—
9 bringing wars to an end in every corner of the world, breaking the bow and shattering the spear, burning chariots with fire.
10 "That's enough! Now know that I am God! I am exalted among all nations; I am exalted throughout the world!
11 The LORD of heavenly forces is with us! The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
