(46) For the end, for the sons of Core; a Psalm concerning secret things.
1 God is our refuge and strength, a help in the afflictions that have come heavily upon us.
2 Therefore will we not fear when the earth is troubled, and the mountains are removed into the depths of the seas.
3 Their waters have roared and been troubled, the mountains have been troubled by his might. Pause.
4 The flowings of the river gladden the city of God: the Most High has sanctified his tabernacle.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her * Alex. and Heb. before, or, toward the morning. with his countenance.
6 The nations were troubled, the kingdoms tottered: he uttered his voice, the earth shook.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our helper. Pause.
8 Come, and behold the works of the Lord, what wonders he has achieved on the earth.
9 Putting an end to wars as for the ends of the earth; he will crush the bow, and break in pieces the weapon, and burn the bucklers with fire.
10 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 of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our helper.
*45:5 Alex. and Heb. before, or, toward the morning.
