Psalm 46:1-9,11 [Latin: Psalmi 45:2-10,12]

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

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

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

Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

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.]

Deus noster refugium et virtus; adjutor in tribulationibus quae invenerunt nos nimis. Propterea non timebimus dum turbabitur terra, et transferentur montes in cor maris. Sonuerunt, et turbatae sunt aquae eorum; conturbati sunt montes in fortitudine ejus. Fluminis impetus laetificat civitatem Dei: sanctificavit tabernaculum suum Altissimus. Deus in medio ejus, non commovebitur; adjuvabit eam Deus mane diluculo. Conturbatae sunt gentes, et inclinata sunt regna: dedit vocem suam, mota est  terra. Dominus virtutum nobiscum; susceptor noster Deus Jacob. Venite, et videte opera Domini, quae posuit prodigia super terram, auferens bella usque ad finem terrae. Arcum conteret, et confringet arma, et scuta comburet igni. […] Dominus virtutum nobiscum; susceptor noster Deus Jacob.
