For the director of music. By ·alamoth [maidens; young women; C perhaps for soprano voices]. A psalm of the sons of Korah [C descendants of Kohath, son of Levi, who served as Temple musicians; 1 Chr. 6:22].
46 God is our ·protection [refuge] and our strength. He ·always helps [is an ever present/timely help] in times of ·trouble [distress]. 2 So we will not be afraid even if the earth ·shakes [quakes], or the mountains ·fall [reel; totter] into the heart of the sea, 3 even if the ·oceans [L waters] roar and foam, or the mountains ·shake [tremble] at ·the raging sea [L its surging]. ·Selah[Interlude]
4 There is a river ·that [L whose channels/streams] brings joy to the city of God, the holy place where God Most High lives. 5 God is in that city, and so it will not ·be shaken [reel; totter]. God will help her at dawn. 6 Nations ·tremble [roar] and kingdoms ·shake [reel; totter]. God ·shouts [L gives forth his voice] and the earth ·crumbles [melts].
7 The Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts] is with us; the God of Jacob is our ·defender [refuge; fortress]. ·Selah[Interlude]
8 Come and see what the Lord has done, ·the amazing things he has done [or the desolations he has brought] on the earth. 9 He stops wars ·everywhere on [L to the ends of] the earth. He breaks all bows and shatters spears and burns up the ·chariots [or shields] with fire. 10 God says, “Be still and know that I am God. I will be ·praised [exalted] in all the nations; I will be ·praised [exalted] throughout the earth.”
11 The Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts] is with us; the God of Jacob is our ·defender [refuge; fortress]. ·Selah[Interlude]
