God the Refuge of His People.

For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to Alamoth. A Song.

1 God is our arefuge and strength,

1A very bpresent help cin 2trouble.

2 Therefore we will anot fear, though bthe earth should change

And though cthe mountains slip into the heart of the 1sea;

3 Though its awaters roar and foam,

Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.


4 There is a ariver whose streams make glad the bcity of God,

The holy cdwelling places of the Most High.

5 God is ain the midst of her, she will not be moved;

God will bhelp her 1when morning dawns.

6 The 1nations amade an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;

He 2braised His voice, the earth cmelted.

7 The Lord of hosts ais with us;

The God of Jacob is bour stronghold.


8 Come, abehold the works of the Lord,

1Who has wrought bdesolations in the earth.

9 He amakes wars to cease to the end of the earth;

He bbreaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;

He cburns the chariots with fire.

10 “1Cease striving and aknow that I am God;

I will be bexalted among the 2nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our stronghold.



About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
