Psalms 46

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.

1 God[1] [Title: alamoth.; Probably a musical term] is our refuge and strength,
     an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
     and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
     and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
     the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
     God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
     he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
     the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see the works of the Lord,
     the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
     he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
     he burns the shields(2) 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 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
