Psalm 46 God’s Defense of His City and People

<To the Heavenly Worship Leader for the sons of Korakh [Bald], A Song upon ‘Alamot [Soprano voices of young women].>

46:1 God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 46:3 [Though] the waters thereof roar [and] be troubled, [though] the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.
Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].

46:4 [There is] a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], the holy [place] of the tabernacles of the most High. 46:5 God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [is] in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall help her, [and that] right early. 46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 46:7 The LORD Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] Tz‘va‘ot [of the Heavenly Armies] [is] with us; the God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Ya‘akov [Heel of God] [is] our refuge.                                                                                                                               Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].

46:8 Come, behold the works of the LORD Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], what desolations he has made in the earth. 46:9 He makes wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and cuts the spear in sunder; he burns the chariot in the fire. 46:10 Be still, and know that I [am] God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 46:11 The LORD Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] Tz‘va‘ot [of the Heavenly Armies] [is] with us; the God Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Ya‘akov [Heel of God] [is] our refuge.  Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said]. (New Messianic Version of the Psalms – Tov Rose)

Prayer:

O most merciful Savior Jesus, Prince of peace, at whose birth all the kingdoms of the world were in peace and tranquility.  Be in the midst of us, for You are our refuge and present help in times of trouble and public calamities. Be in the midst of us, O God our Refuge and help, when the kingdom is moved, and the hearts of men shake at the tempests of the same.

Dearest God and Father, unite all the parts of Christendom with the union of faith and charity, and make the fruits of them, a blessed and universal peace. Break the bow of the mighty, snap the spear of the warrior in sunder, and burn the chariots in the fire, that wars may cease in all the world, so that we all may feel the promised blessing of the Gospel, that our swords may be converted into ploughshares and our spears into pruning-hooks: that Your name and Your kingdom may be exalted among the heathen, and in all the nations of the earth.  Glory be to You, Lord God Almighty, who lives and reigns over all, in the unity of the blessed Trinity.  God eternal, whose world is without end. Amen. (Jeremy Taylor 1613-1667 –  slightly edited)
