1 Living in the Most High's shelter, camping in the Almighty's shade, 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I say to the LORD, "You are my refuge, my stronghold! You are my God—the one I trust!" 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 the hunter's trap and from deadly sickness. 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 God will protect you with his pinions; you'll find refuge under his wings. His faithfulness is a protective shield. 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 Don't be afraid of terrors at night, arrows that fly in daylight, 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 or sickness that prowls in the dark, destruction that ravages at noontime. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 Even if one thousand people fall dead next to you, ten thousand right beside you— it won't happen to you. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 Just look with your eyes, and you will see the wicked punished. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 Because you've made the LORD my refuge, the Most High, your place of residence— 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 no evil will happen to you; no disease will come close to your tent. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 Because he will order his messengers to help you, to protect you wherever you go. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 They will carry you with their own hands so you don't bruise your foot on a stone. 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You'll march on top of lions and vipers; you'll trample young lions and serpents underfoot. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 God says,"Because you are devoted to me, I'll rescue you. I'll 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 Whenever you cry out to me, I'll answer. I'll be with you in troubling times. I'll save you and glorify 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'll fill you full with old age. I'll show you my salvation." 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
