From six calamities he will rescue1 you; in seven no harm will befall you.2
In famine3 he will ransom you from death, and in battle from the stroke of the sword.4
You will be protected from the lash of the tongue,5 and need not fear6 when destruction comes.7
You will laugh8 at destruction and famine,9 and need not fear the beasts of the earth.10
For you will have a covenant11 with the stones12 of the field, and the wild animals will be at peace with you.13
You will know that your tent is secure;14 you will take stock of your property and find nothing missing.15
