(Ps 93:3; Jer 5:22) There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. (Ps 36:8; Ps 43:3; Ps 48:1; Ps 65:9; Ps 84:1; Ps 87:3; Isa 8:6; Isa 33:21; Isa 60:14; Re 22:1) God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
