I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I cried out to You, O Lord;
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you.
For you have made the Lord, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
You have today declared the Lord to be your God, and that you would walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments and His ordinances, and listen to His voice.
“The eternal God is a dwelling place,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
And He drove out the enemy from before you,
And said, ‘Destroy!’
You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted,
But the Lord is his refuge.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.
For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to Alamoth. A Song.
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
The earth has yielded its produce;
God, our God, blesses us.
Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come;
You have given commandment to save me,
For You are my rock and my fortress.
“Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
For the Lord God is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.”
“The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him.”
But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.
“How could one chase a thousand,
And two put ten thousand to flight,
Unless their Rock had sold them,
And the Lord had given them up?
For such is God,
Our God forever and ever;
He will guide us until death.
My soul, wait in silence for God only,
For my hope is from Him.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous runs into it and is safe.
“At that time,” declares the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.”
