God the Refuge of His People.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to soprano voices. A Song.
1 God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas,
3 Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its roaring. Selah.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her [His city], she will not be moved; God will help her when the morning dawns.
6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered and were moved; He raised His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower]. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has brought desolations and wonders on the earth.
9 He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow into pieces and snaps the spear in two; He burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower]. Selah.Psalm 46:1-11 (AMP)
