Book II
God the Refuge of His People
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah; set to Alamoth. A Song.
[1]  GOD is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
[2]  Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change,
And though the mountains be shaken into the heart of the seas;
[3]  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains tremble with the swelling 1 thereof.  [Selah
[4]  There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.
[5]  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved:
God will help her, and 2 that right early.
[6]  The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved:
He uttered his voice, the earth melted.
[7]  Jehovah of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. 3  [Selah
[8]  Come, behold the works of Jehovah,
What 4 desolations he hath made in the earth.
[9]  He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth;
He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;
He burneth the chariots in the fire.
[10]  Be 5 still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
[11]  Jehovah of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. 6  [Selah
