Psalms 46

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.
Probably a musical term
A song.

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verses 7 and 11.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The  Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Come and see what the  Lord has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields
Or chariots
with fire.
10 He says, ‘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.
