Psalm 46

I am memorizing this whole chapter...the most comforting and uplifting Psalm. I find myself clinging to it right now.

For the director of music.

Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A song.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam

and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;

God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;

he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The LORD Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
8 Come and see the works of the LORD,

the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;

he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields 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 Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
