The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.a2
I will sayb to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."c3
He Himself will deliver you from the hunter's net,d from the destructive plague.e4
He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings.f His faithfulness will be a protective shield.
You will not fear the terror of the night, the arrow that flies by day,
the plagueg that stalks in darkness, or the pestilence that ravages at noon.
Though a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, the pestilence will not reach you.
You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord-my refuge,h the Most High-your dwelling place,i10
no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent.
For He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you in all your ways.
They will support you with their handsj so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.k13
You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the young lion and the serpent.l14
Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him; I will exalt him because he knows My name.m15
When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will rescue him and give him honor.n16
I will satisfy him with a long lifeo and show him My salvation.p
