Psalm 46

1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;

3though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. Selah

4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.

5God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns.

6The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

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

8Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations he has brought on the earth.

9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.

10“Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”

11The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah

Psalm 47

1Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy.

2For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth.

3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.

4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

5God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

6Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7For God is the king of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm.

8God is king over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.

9The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted.

Psalm 48

1Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God. His holy mountain,

2beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.

3Within its citadels God has shown himself a sure defense.

4Then the kings assembled, they came on together.

5As soon as they saw it, they were astounded; they were in panic, they took to flight;

6trembling took hold of them there, pains as of a woman in labor,

7as when an east wind shatters the ships of Tarshish.

8As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God, which God establishes forever. Selah

9We ponder your steadfast love, O God, in the midst of your temple.

10Your name, O God, like your praise, reaches to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is filled with victory.

11Let Mount Zion be glad, let the towns of Judah rejoice because of your judgments.

12Walk about Zion, go all around it, count its towers,

13consider well its ramparts; go through its citadels, that you may tell the next generation

14that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will be our guide forever.

Psalm 49

1Hear this, all you peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

2both low and high, rich and poor together.

3My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.

4I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will solve my riddle to the music of the harp.

5Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of my persecutors surrounds me,

6those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?

7Truly, no ransom avails for one’s life, there is no price one can give to God for it.

8For the ransom of life is costly, and can never suffice

9that one should live on forever and never see the grave.

10When we look at the wise, they die; fool and dolt perish together and leave their wealth to others.

11Their graves are their homes forever, their dwelling places to all generations, though they named lands their own.

12Mortals cannot abide in their pomp; they are like the animals that perish.

13Such is the fate of the foolhardy, the end of those who are pleased with their lot. Selah

14Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol; Death shall be their shepherd; straight to the grave they descend, and their form shall waste away; Sheol shall be their home.

15But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me. Selah

16Do not be afraid when some become rich, when the wealth of their houses increases.

17For when they die they will carry nothing away; their wealth will not go down after them.

18Though in their lifetime they count themselves happy—for you are praised when you do well for yourself—

19they will go to the company of their ancestors, who will never again see the light.

20Mortals cannot abide in their pomp; they are like the animals that perish.
