God the Refuge of His People.
For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set F408 to Alamoth. A Song.
1 God is our refuge R1394 and strength,
A F409 very present R1395 help in R1396 trouble. F410
2 Therefore we will not R1397 fear, though the R1398 earth should change
And though the R1399 mountains slip into the heart of the sea; F411
3 Though its waters R1400 roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah. F412
4 There is a river R1401 whose streams make glad the city R1402 of God,
The holy dwelling R1403 places of the Most High.
5 God is in R1404 the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will help R1405 her when F413 morning dawns.
6 The nations F414 made R1406 an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He raised R1407 F415 His voice, the earth melted. R1408
7 The LORD of hosts is R1409 with us;
The God of Jacob is our R1410 stronghold. Selah.
8 Come, behold R1411 the works of the LORD,
Who F416 has wrought desolations R1412 in the earth.
9 He makes R1413 wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks R1414 the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns R1415 the chariots with fire.
10 "Cease F417 striving and know R1416 that I am God;
I will be exalted R1417 among the nations, F418 I will be exalted in the earth."
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.
