GOD is our refuge and strength, a 5very 6present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though 7the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the 8midst of the sea;
Though the 9waters thereof roar and be 10troubled, though the mountains shake 11with the swelling thereof. 12Selah.
There is a 13river, the 14streams whereof shall make glad the 15city of God, 16the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
God is in the midst of 17her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that 18right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: 19he uttered his 20voice, the earth 21melted.
The LORD of 22hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath 23made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the 24earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;a he burneth the chariot in the fire.
25Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the 26heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of 27hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
