Psalm 46

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah; set to Alamoth. A Song.

1God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

2Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change,

And though the mountains be shaken into the heart of the seas

3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,

Though the mountains tremble with the swelling thereof. Selah

4There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God,

The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.

5God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved:

God will help her, and that right early.

6The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved:

He uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7Jehovah of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

8Come, behold the works of Jehovah,

What desolations he hath made in the earth.

9He 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.

10Be still, and know that I am God:

I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

11Jehovah of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

ASV 1901

About American Standard Version

The ASV has long been regarded by many scholars as the most literal English translation since the King James Version—maybe the most literal translation ever. This has made the translation very popular for careful English Bible study, but not for ease of reading. While the KJV was translated entirely from “western manuscripts,” the ASV 1901 was influenced also by the older “eastern manuscripts” that form the basis for most of our modern English translations. Because the ASV 1901 is very difficult to find in print, Logos is pleased to be able to preserve and distribute this significant work. This is an excellent choice for comparative English study.
