New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Those who go to God Most High for safety will be protected by 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 place of safety and protection. You are my God and I trust you." 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 God will save you from hidden traps and from deadly diseases. 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 can hide. His truth will be your shield and protection. 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 not fear any danger by night or an arrow during the day. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark or sickness that strikes at noon. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 At your side one thousand people may die, or even ten thousand right beside you, but you will not be hurt. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only watch and see the wicked punished. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 The Lord is your protection; you have made God Most High your place of safety. 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 Nothing bad will happen to you; no disaster will come to your home. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 He has put his angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 They will catch you in their hands so that you will not hit your foot on 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 walk on lions and cobras; you will step on strong lions and snakes. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 The Lord says, "Whoever loves me, I will save. I will protect those who know me. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in trouble; I will rescue them and honor them. 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 give them a long, full life, and they will see how I can save." A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
