Be Still and Know That I am God – Psalm 46:10

The word “still” in this verse is often translated to mean to fold your hands or relax. However, it can also be interpreted as stopping all action or letting down one’s strength and relying on the Lord for all their needs.

This command is written to people who are in distress or experiencing a crisis, such as those who may be fighting a war. The idea is that it’s better to be still than to be frantic and lose one’s strength, so it’s important that people stop their irrational anger or fight against the enemy when necessary.

There are many views on what the verse actually means, but some interpret this verse as a warning to Israel’s enemies or the world at large. Others believe that it’s a call to the people of Israel to be still in their time of trouble and to trust the Lord.

The Bible version that we’re most familiar with is the ESV, which translates this verse as, “Let them be still and know that I am God.” The words in this verse could refer to God directly, or they could also be speaking to the Gentile nations. Regardless, this verse is meant to be a reminder that God is the Creator and Ruler of all things and that he alone is worthy of respect and honor. He is the only Lord and Savior, and he will be properly honored by all those who acknowledge him.

Be Still and Know That I am God   Psalm 4610


Hide me now
Under Your wings
Cover me
Within Your mighty hand

When the oceans rise
And thunders roar
I will soar with You
Above the storm
Father You are King
Over the flood
I will be still and know
You are God

Find rest my soul
In Christ alone
Know His power
In quietness and trust
