To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.
1 God our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 the waters thereof roar be troubled, the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4 a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy of the tabernacles of the most High.
5 God in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, right early.
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts with us; the God of Jacob our refuge. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The LORD of hosts with us; the God of Jacob our refuge. Selah.
