Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Happy is he whose resting-place is in the secret of the Lord, and under the shade of the wings of the Most High; 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 Who says of the Lord, He is my safe place and my tower of strength: he is my God, in whom is my hope. 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 He will take you out of the bird-net, and keep you safe from wasting disease. 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 You will be covered by his feathers; under his wings you will be safe: his good faith will be your salvation. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will have no fear of the evil things of the night, or of the arrow in flight by day, 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 Or of the disease which takes men in the dark, or of the destruction which makes waste when the sun is high. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 You will see a thousand falling by your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes will you see the reward of the evil-doers. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 Because you have said, I am in the hands of the Lord, the Most High is my safe resting-place; 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 No evil will come on you, and no disease will come near your tent. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will give you into the care of his angels to keep you wherever you go. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 In their hands they will keep you up, so that your foot may not be crushed against a stone. 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will put your foot on the lion and the snake; the young lion and the great snake will be crushed under your feet. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 Because he has given me his love, I will take him out of danger: I will put him in a place of honour, because he has kept my name in his heart. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 When his cry comes up to me, I will give him an answer: I will be with him in trouble; I will make him free from danger and give him honour. 15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will he be rewarded; and I will let him see my salvation. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
