Psalms 46:1-11


  • “God is our refuge”

    • God’s astonishing works (8)

    • God ends wars in all the earth (9)

To the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ According to the Alʹa·moth style.* A song. 46  God is our refuge and strength,+ A help that is readily found in times of distress.+   That is why we will not fear, though the earth undergoes change, Though the mountains topple into the depths of the sea,+   Though its waters roar and foam over,+ Though the mountains rock on account of its turbulence. (Selah)   There is a river the streams of which make the city of God rejoice,+ The holy grand tabernacle of the Most High.   God is in the city;+ it cannot be overthrown. God will come to its aid at the break of dawn.+   The nations were in an uproar, the kingdoms were overthrown; He raised his voice, and the earth melted.+   Jehovah of armies is with us;+ The God of Jacob is our secure refuge.* (Selah)   Come and witness the activities of Jehovah, How he has done astonishing things on the earth.   He is bringing an end to wars throughout the earth.+ He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; He burns the military wagons* with fire. 10  “Give in and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations;+ I will be exalted in the earth.”+ 11  Jehovah of armies is with us;+ The God of Jacob is a secure refuge for us.+ (Selah)


Or “secure height.”
Or possibly, “the shields.”
