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.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 46

Psalm 46

For the director of music. A song of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.

God is our place of safety. He gives us strength.
    He is always there to help us in times of trouble.
The earth may fall apart.
    The mountains may fall into the middle of the sea.
    But we will not be afraid.
The waters of the sea may roar and foam.
    The mountains may shake when the waters rise.
    But we will not be afraid.

God’s blessings are like a river. They fill the city of God with joy.
    That city is the holy place where the Most High God lives.
Because God is there, the city will not fall.
    God will help it at the beginning of the day.
Nations are in disorder. Kingdoms fall.
    God speaks, and the people of the earth melt in fear.

The Lord who rules over all is with us.
    The God of Jacob is like a fort to us.

Come and see what the Lord has done.
    See the places he has destroyed on the earth.
He makes wars stop from one end of the earth to the other.
    He breaks every bow. He snaps every spear.
    He burns every shield with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God.
    I will be honored among the nations.
    I will be honored in the earth.”

11 The Lord who rules over all is with us.
    The God of Jacob is like a fort to us.
