Amplified Bible

Psalm 46

God the Refuge of His People.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to soprano voices. A Song.

1God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable],
A very present and well-proved help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change
And though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas,

Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains tremble at its roaring. Selah.


There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
The holy dwelling places of the Most High.

God is in the midst of her [His city], she will not be moved;
God will help her when the morning dawns.

The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered and were moved;
He raised His voice, the earth melted.

The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower]. Selah.


Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has brought desolations and wonders on the earth.

He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow into pieces and snaps the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
10 
“Be still and know (recognize, understand) that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold [our refuge, our high tower]. Selah.

Salme 46

Gud er midt iblandt sit folk

1Til korlederen: En sang af Koras slægt. Synges af sopranstemmer.[a]

Gud er vor tilflugt og styrke,
    parat til at hjælpe i svære tider.
Derfor behøver vi ikke at frygte,
    om jorden end ryster, og bjergene styrter i havet,
om end havene larmer og raser,
    om end bjergene skælver ved bølgernes brusen.

Kanaler med vand bringer glæde til byen,
    hvor Gud, den Almægtige, bor.
Den by går aldrig til grunde, for Guds bolig er der.
    Han redder den, når morgenen gryr.
Nationer går i krig, og riger styrter sammen,
    men når Gud taler, skælver hele jorden.
Den almægtige Gud er med os.
    Israels Gud er vores redning.
Kom og se, hvad Herren gør,
    når han kæmper imod sine fjender.
10 Han gør ende på alle krige i verden,
    han brækker buen og splintrer spyddet,
        alle skjolde bliver brændt.
11 „Stop,” råber han. „Accepter, at jeg er Gud!
    Alle folk på jorden skal ære mig.”
12 Herren, den Almægtige, er midt iblandt os.
    Israels Gud er vores tilflugt.
