Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty, 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 can say to him, "You are my defender and protector. You are my God; in you I trust." 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all 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 wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you. 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 need not fear any dangers at night or sudden attacks during the day 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 or the plagues that strike in the dark or the evils that kill in daylight. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall dead beside you, ten thousand all around you, but you will not be harmed. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will look and see how the wicked are punished. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 You have made the Lord your defender, the Most High your protector, 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 and so no disaster will strike you, no violence will come near your home. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 God will put his angels in charge of 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 hold you up with their hands to keep you from hurting your feet on the stones. 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will trample down lions and snakes, fierce lions and poisonous snakes. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 God says, "I will save those who love me and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 When they call to me, I will answer them; when they are in trouble, I will be with them. 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 reward them with long life; I will save them." 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
