He Makes Wars Cease

Psalm 46

For the music director, of the sons of Korah, according to Alamoth, a song.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth change,
though the mountains topple into the heart of the seas,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains quake at their swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God—
the holy dwelling place of Elyon.[a]
God is in the midst of her, she will not be shaken.
God will help her when morning dawns.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms totter,
He utters His voice, the earth melts!
Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us.
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

Come, see the works of Adonai,
who brings devastations on the earth.
10 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear.
He burns chariots with fire.
11 “Be still, and know that I am God.
I am exalted among the nations.
I am exalted in the earth.”
12 Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us.
The God of Jacob is our strong tower. Selah
