Psalm 46:1-11

To the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ According to the Alʹa·moth style.* A song. 46  God is our refuge and strength,+A help that is readily found in times of distress.+   That is why we will not fear, though the earth undergoes change,Though the mountains topple into the depths of the sea,+   Though its waters roar and foam over,+Though the mountains rock on account of its turbulence. (Selah)   There is a river the streams of which make the city of God rejoice,+The holy grand tabernacle of the Most High.   God is in the city;+ it cannot be overthrown. God will come to its aid at the break of dawn.+   The nations were in an uproar, the kingdoms were overthrown;He raised his voice, and the earth melted.+   Jehovah of armies is with us;+The God of Jacob is our secure refuge.* (Selah)   Come and witness the activities of Jehovah,How he has done astonishing things on the earth.   He is bringing an end to wars throughout the earth.+ He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;He burns the military wagons* with fire. 10  “Give in and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations;+I will be exalted in the earth.”+ 11  Jehovah of armies is with us;+The God of Jacob is a secure refuge for us.+ (Selah)


Or “secure height.”
Or possibly, “the shields.”
