1 To the chief musician: by the sons of Korach, upon Alamoth, a song. God is our protection and strength, a help in distresses, very readily found.
2 Therefore will we not fear, even when the earth is transformed, and when mountains are moved into the heart of the seas;
3 When the waters thereof roar and foam, when mountains quake before his majesty. Selah.
4 There is a river, its rivulets cause to rejoice the city of God, the sanctuary of the dwellings of the Most High.
5 God is in her midst; she shall not be moved: God will ever help her, at the dawning of her morning.
6 Nations rage, kingdoms are moved: he letteth his voice be heard, the earth melteth away.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; a defense unto us is the God of Jacob. Selah.
8 Come, look at the deeds of the Lord, who hath made desolations on the earth.
9 He causeth wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in pieces; he burneth wagons in the fire.
10 Leave off, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth.
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; a defence unto us is the God of Jacob. Selah.
