GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Whoever lives under the shelter of the Most High will remain in the shadow of the Almighty. 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the LORD, "[You are] my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust." 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 He is the one who will rescue you from hunters' traps and from deadly plagues. 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge. His truth is your shield and armor. 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 do not need to fear terrors of the night, arrows that fly during the day, 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 plagues that roam the dark, epidemics that strike at noon. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 They will not come near you, even though a thousand may fall dead beside you or ten thousand at your right side. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You only have to look with your eyes to see the punishment of wicked people. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 You, O LORD, are my refuge! You have made the Most High your home. 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 No harm will come to you. No sickness will come near your house. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 He will put his angels in charge of you to protect you in all your ways. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 They will carry you in their hands so that you never hit your foot against a rock. 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will step on lions and cobras. You will trample young lions and snakes. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 Because you love me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 When you call to me, I will answer you. I will be with you when you are in trouble. I will save you and honor you. 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 I will satisfy you with a long life. I will show you how I will save you. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
