For the choir director; a song by the descendants of Korah; according to alamoth.[a]
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. 2 That is why we are not afraid even when the earth quakes or the mountains topple into the depths of the sea. 3 Water roars and foams, and mountains shake at the surging waves. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams bring joy to the city of God, the holy place where the Most High lives. 5 God is in that city. It cannot fall. God will help it at the break of dawn. 6 Nations are in turmoil, and kingdoms topple. The earth melts at the sound of God’s voice.
7 The Lord of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah
8 Come, see the works of the Lord, the devastation he has brought to the earth. 9 He puts an end to wars all over the earth. He breaks an archer’s bow. He cuts spears in two. He burns chariots. 10 Let go of your concerns! Then you will know that I am God. I rule the nations. I rule the earth.
11 The Lord of Armies is with us. The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah
