Psalms 46 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah; set to Alamoth. A Song.

46:1God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

46:2Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change,

And though the mountains be shaken into the heart of the seas;

46:3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,

Though the mountains tremble with the swelling thereof.


46:4There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God,

The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.

46:5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved:

God will help her, and that right early.

46:6The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved:

He uttered his voice, the earth melted.

46:7Jehovah of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge.


46:8Come, behold the works of Jehovah,

What desolations he hath made in the earth.

46:9He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth;

He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;

He burneth the chariots in the fire.

46:10Be still, and know that I am God: 1

I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

46:11Jehovah of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge.
