Psalms Chapters 46-48
Psalms Chapter 46
1: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
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.
11: The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

2: For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
3: He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
4: He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
5: God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
6: Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
7: For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
8: God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
9: The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
Psalms Chapter 48
1: Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2: Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3: God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4: For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5: They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6: Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7: Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8: As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
9: We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
10: According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
11: Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
12: Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13: Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
14: For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
