Psalm 46

For the choir director: A song of the descendants of Korah, to be sung by soprano voices.*
1 God is our refuge and strength,
  always ready to help in times of trouble.
2 So we will not fear when earthquakes come
  and the mountains crumble into the sea.
3 Let the oceans roar and foam.
  Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!    Interlude

4 A river brings joy to the city of our God,
  the sacred home of the Most High.
5 God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed.
  From the very break of day, God will protect it.
6 The nations are in chaos,
  and their kingdoms crumble!
God's voice thunders,
  and the earth melts!
7 The LORD of Heaven's Armies is here among us;
  the God of Israel* is our fortress.    Interlude

8 Come, see the glorious works of the LORD:
  See how he brings destruction upon the world.
9 He causes wars to end throughout the earth.
  He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;
  he burns the shields with fire.

10 "Be still, and know that I am God!
  I will be honored by every nation.
  I will be honored throughout the world."

11 The LORD of Heaven's Armies is here among us;
  the God of Israel is our fortress.    Interlude

“The NLT second edition was put together by a dream team of scholars and linguists and gives us a Bible that is thoroughly reliable and eminently readable. It allows the Scriptures to speak with fresh vitality.”
