2 Our God is our refuge and strength, a helper in the tribulations that have greatly overwhelmed us.
3 Because of this, we will not be afraid when the earth will be turbulent and the mountains will be transferred into the heart of the sea.
4 They thundered, and the waters were stirred up among them; the mountains have been disturbed by his strength.
5 The frenzy of the river rejoices the city of God. The Most High has sanctified his tabernacle.
6 God is in its midst; it will not be shaken. God will assist it in the early morning.
7 The peoples have been disturbed, and the kingdoms have been bowed down. He uttered his voice: the earth has been moved.
8 The Lord of hosts is with us. The God of Jacob is our supporter.
9 Draw near and behold the works of the Lord: what portents he has set upon the earth,
Ezekiel 47:1-9, 12
1 And he turned me back to the gate of the house. And behold, waters went out, from under the threshold of the house, toward the east. For the face of the house looked toward the east. But the waters descended on the right side of the temple, toward the south of the altar.
2 And he led me out, along the way of the north gate, and he turned me back toward the way outside the exterior gate, the way which looked toward the east. And behold, the waters overflowed on the right side.
3 Then the man who held the rope in his hand departed toward the east, and he measured one thousand cubits. And he led me forward, through the water, up to the ankles.
4 And again he measured one thousand, and he led me forward, through the water, up to the knees.
5 And he measured one thousand, and he led me forward, through the water, up to the waist. And he measured one thousand, into a torrent, through which I was not able to pass. For the waters had risen to become a profound torrent, which was not able to be crossed.
6 And he said to me: "Son of man, certainly you have seen." And he led me out, and he turned me back to the bank of the torrent.
7 And when I had turned myself around, behold, on the bank of the torrent, there were very many trees on both sides.
8 And he said to me: "These waters, which go forth toward the hillocks of sand to the east, and which descend to the plains of the desert, will enter the sea, and will go out, and the waters will be healed.
9 And every living soul that moves, wherever the torrent arrives, will live. And there will be more than enough fish, after these waters have arrived there, and they will be healed. And all things will live, where the torrent arrives.
12 And above the torrent, on its banks on both sides, every kind of fruit tree will rise up. Their foliage will not fall away, and their fruit will not fail. Every single month they will bring forth first-fruits. For its waters will go forth from the sanctuary. And its fruits will be for food, and its leaves will be for medicine."
