Tehillim/Psalms 46.2-4, 12



God is our refuge and stronghold,

a help in trouble, very near.

Therefore we are not afraid

though the earth reels,

though mountains topple into the sea ~

its waters rage and foam;

in its swell mountains quake. Selah. . . .

[but] The Lord of hosts is with us;

The God of Jacob is our haven. Selah.

Tehillim/Psalms 104.10-13




You made springs gush forth in torrents;

they make their way between the hills,

giving drink to all the wild beasts;

the wild asses slake their thirst.

The birds of the sky dwell beside them

and sing among the foliage.

You water the mountains from Your lofts;

the earth is sated from the fruit of Your work.

do not be vexed;

it can only do harm.

Hear my voice, O Lord, at daybreak;

make Your way straight before me.
