Psalm 46


Psalms 46 is an uplifting hymn that provides solace and encouragement by portraying God as our refuge and strength, especially during distressing times. The psalm reassures believers that, even when the earth gives way or mountains crumble into the sea, God's presence is constant and unwavering. The imagery of a city safeguarded by God's river adds to the sense of divine protection. As a counterpoint to the chaos and wars that men start, God is shown to be the ultimate power who can easily end all conflicts. The psalm culminates in a universal call to recognize God's sovereignty, reminding us to "be still, and know that I am God." Whether interpreted as a hymn sung during ancient religious ceremonies or a timeless reminder of spiritual resilience, Psalms 46 serves as a comforting passage that inspires faith and peace amidst life's storms.

2  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3  Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4  There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6  The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7  The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8  Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9  He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
