He who dwells in the shelter1 of the Most High will rest in the shadow2 of the Almighty.a2
I will sayb of the LORD, "He is my refuge3 and my fortress,4 my God, in whom I trust."
Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare5 and from the deadly pestilence.64
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;7 his faithfulness will be your shield8 and rampart.
You will not fear9 the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.109
If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--
then no harm11 will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels12 concerning you to guard you in all your ways;1312
they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.1413
You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.1514
"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.1616
With long life17 will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.18"
