Psalmi 46 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

46 In finem, pro filiis Core. Psalmus.

Omnes gentes, plaudite manibus; jubilate Deo in voce exsultationis:

quoniam Dominus excelsus, terribilis, rex magnus super omnem terram.

Subjecit populos nobis, et gentes sub pedibus nostris.

Elegit nobis haereditatem suam; speciem Jacob quam dilexit.

Ascendit Deus in jubilo, et Dominus in voce tubae.

Psallite Deo nostro, psallite; psallite regi nostro, psallite:

quoniam rex omnis terrae Deus, psallite sapienter.

Regnabit Deus super gentes; Deus sedet super sedem sanctam suam.

10 Principes populorum congregati sunt cum Deo Abraham, quoniam dii fortes terrae vehementer elevati sunt.

Psalm 46 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 46[a]

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.[b] 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.[c]

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[d] 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.
