For the choir director: A song of the descendants of Korah, to be sung by soprano voices.*
always ready to help in times of trouble.
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
the sacred home of the Most High.
From the very break of day, God will protect it.
and their kingdoms crumble!
God’s voice thunders,
and the earth melts!
the God of Israel* is our fortress.
See how he brings destruction upon the world.
He breaks the bow and snaps the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
the God of Israel is our fortress.
