God Provides for and Protects His People

1 God [is] our refuge and strength, a very sufficient help in troubles.
2 Therefore we will not fear though [the] earth change, and though the mountains totter into [the] {midst} of [the] sea,
3 though its waters roar [and] foam, though mountains shake with its surging [water]. Selah
4 [There is] a river whose streams gladden the city of God, the holiest of the dwellings of the Most High.
5 God [is] in the midst of her; she will not be made to totter. God will help her {at daybreak}.
6 Nations roar, kingdoms shake; he utters his voice, [the] earth melts.
7 Yahweh of hosts [is] with us; our [high] stronghold [is] the God of Jacob. Selah
8 Come, see the works of Yahweh, who has placed desolations on the earth.
9 [He] makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks [the] bow and cuts off [the] spear. [The] wagons [of war] he burns with fire.
10 Be still, 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; the God of Jacob [is] our [high] stronghold.
