1   God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2   Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3   though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult. Selah

4   There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5   God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;
God will help it when the morning dawns.
6   The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7   The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

8   Come, behold the works of the LORD;
see what desolations he has brought on the earth.
9   He makes wars cease to the end 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 am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth.”
11  The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah


1   The LORD is king, he is robed in majesty;
the LORD is robed, he is girded with strength.
He has established the world; it shall never be moved;
2        your throne is established from of old;
you are from everlasting.

3   The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
the floods have lifted up their voice;
the floods lift up their roaring.
4   More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters,
more majestic than the waves of the sea,
majestic on high is the LORD!

5   Your decrees are very sure;
holiness befits your house,
O LORD, forevermore.
