2 He is saying of Jehovah, `My refuge, and my bulwark, 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."

5 Thou art not afraid of fear by night, Of arrow that flieth by day, 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 Of pestilence in thick darkness that walketh, Of destruction that destroyeth at noon, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 There fall at thy side a thousand, And a myriad at thy right hand, Unto thee it cometh not nigh. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

9 (For Thou, O Jehovah, [art] my refuge,) The Most High thou madest thy habitation. 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
10 Evil happeneth not unto thee, And a plague cometh not near thy tent, 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For His messengers He chargeth for thee, To keep thee in all thy ways, 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 On the hands they bear thee up, Lest thou smite against a stone thy foot. 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 On lion and asp thou treadest, Thou trampest young lion and dragon. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 Because in Me he hath delighted, I also deliver him -- I set him on high, Because he hath known My name. 14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He doth call Me, and I answer him, I [am] with him in distress, I deliver him, and honour 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 With length of days I satisfy him, And I cause him to look on My salvation! 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
