To the Director: A song by the Sons of Korah, to the tune of[a] “The Maidens”.
God is the Refuge of His People
46 God is our refuge and strength, a great help in times of distress. 2 Therefore we will not be frightened when the earth roars, when the mountains shake in the depths of the seas, 3 when its waters roar and rage, when the mountains tremble despite their pride.[b] Interlude
4 Look! There is a river whose streams make the city of God rejoice, even the Holy Place of the Most High. 5 Since God is in her midst, she will not be shaken. God will help her at the break of dawn. 6 The nations roared; the kingdoms were shaken. His voice boomed; the earth melts. 7 The Lord of the heavenly armies is with us; our refuge is the God of Jacob. Interlude
8 Come, observe the mighty works of the Lord, who causes desolation in the earth. 9 He causes wars to cease all over[c] the earth, he causes the bow to break, the spear to snap, the chariots to ignite and burn.
10 Be in awe and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted throughout the earth.
11 The Lord of the heavenly armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Interlude
