New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The person who rests in the shadow of the Most High God will be kept safe by the Mighty One. 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say about the Lord, "He is my place of safety. He is like a fort to me. He is my God. I trust in him." 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 He will certainly save you from hidden traps and from deadly sickness. 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his wings. Under the feathers of his wings you will find safety. He is faithful. He will keep you safe like a shield or a tower. 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 won't have to be afraid of the terrors that come during the night. You won't have to fear the arrows that come at you during the day. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 You won't have to be afraid of the sickness that attacks in the darkness. You won't have to fear the plague that destroys at noon. 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall dead at your side. Ten thousand may fall near your right hand. But no harm will come to you. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will see with your own eyes how God punishes sinful people. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 The LORD is the one who keeps you safe. So let the Most High God be like a home to you. 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 Then no harm will come to you. No terrible plague will come near your tent. 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 The LORD will command his angels to take good care of you. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 They will lift you up in their hands. Then you won't trip over 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 walk all over lions and cobras. You will crush mighty lions and poisonous snakes. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 The LORD says, "I will save the one who loves me. I will keep him safe, because he trusts in me. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call out to me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in times of trouble. I will save him and honor him. 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 him a long and full life. I will save him." 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
