Psalm 46–47

Psalm 46a

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.b A song.

God is our refugem and strength,n

an ever-presento helpp in trouble.q

Therefore we will not fear,r though the earth give ways

and the mountains fallt into the heart of the sea,u

though its waters roarv and foamw

and the mountains quakex with their surging.c

There is a rivery whose streamsz make glad the city of God,a

the holy place where the Most Highb dwells.c

God is within her,d she will not fall;e

God will helpf her at break of day.

Nationsg are in uproar,h kingdomsi fall;

he lifts his voice,j the earth melts.k

The Lord Almightyl is with us;m

the God of Jacobn is our fortress.o

Come and see what the Lord has done,p

the desolationsq he has brought on the earth.

He makes warsr cease

to the ends of the earth.

He breaks the bows and shatters the spear;

he burns the shieldsd with fire.t

10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;u

I will be exaltedv among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacobw is our fortress.x

Psalm 47a

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

Clap your hands,y all you nations;

shout to God with cries of joy.z

For the Lord Most Higha is awesome,b

the great Kingc over all the earth.

He subduedd nations under us,

peoples under our feet.

He chose our inheritancee for us,

the pride of Jacob,f whom he loved.b

God has ascendedg amid shouts of joy,h

the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.i

Sing praisesj to God, sing praises;

sing praises to our King, sing praises.

For God is the King of all the earth;k

sing to him a psalml of praise.

God reignsm over the nations;

God is seated on his holy throne.n

The nobles of the nations assemble

as the people of the God of Abraham,

for the kingsc of the earth belong to God;o

he is greatly exalted.p
