Psalm 46 Bible in Basic English

God Is Our Refuge and Strength

46 1  God is our harbour and our strength, a very present help in trouble. 2  For this cause we will have no fear, even though the earth is changed, and though the mountains are moved in the heart of the sea; 3  Though its waters are sounding and troubled, and though the mountains are shaking with their violent motion. (Selah.) 4  There is a river whose streams make glad the resting-place of God, the holy place of the tents of the Most High. 5  God has taken his place in her; she will not be moved: he will come to her help at the dawn of morning.

6  The nations were angry, the kingdoms were moved; at the sound of his voice the earth became like wax. 7  The Lord of armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. (Selah.) 8  Come, see the works of the Lord, the destruction which he has made in the earth. 9  He puts an end to wars over all the earth; by him the bow is broken, and the spear cut in two, and the carriage burned in the fire. 10  Be at peace in the knowledge that I am God: I will be lifted up among the nations, I will be honoured through all the earth. 11  The Lord of armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. (Selah.)
