Political Concerns? Agree w/Psalm 46: God Rules the Nations

Psalm 46 is often quoted in Christian circles for verse 10: Be still and know that I am God

peace-dove-politics-flagsHere is that psalm from another version. I listened to it, considering the global political climate of 2017. It changed my perspective. Maybe yours, too? 

Elohim is our Machseh and strength,
 an ever-present help in times of trouble.
That is why we are not afraid
 even when the earth quakes
 or the mountains topple into the depths of the sea.

Water roars and foams, and mountains shake at the surging waves. Selah

There is a river whose streams bring joy to the city of Elohim,
     the holy place where Elyon lives.
Elohim is in that city.
    It cannot fall.
    Elohim will help it at the break of dawn.
Nations are in turmoil, and kingdoms topple.
    The earth melts at the sound of God’s voice.

Yahweh Tsebaoth is with us.
    The Elohim of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

Come, see the works of Yahweh,
    the devastation he has brought to the earth.
He puts an end to wars all over the earth.
     He breaks an archer’s bow.
     He cuts spears in two.
     He burns chariots.
Let go of your concerns!
     Then you will know that I am Elohim.
     I rule the nations.
     I rule the earth.

Yahweh Tsebaoth is with us.
    The Elohim of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah
