| He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; |
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields [a] with fire.
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted 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. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. |
|He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth; |
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariots with fire.
"Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
|Psalm 46:10 |

Some Bible students believe that this psalm was written in connection with the dramatic deliverance of Jerusalem from the Assyrians (2 Kings 18-20). This song was the inspiration for Martin Luther's "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," and it can be an inspiration to you today.
