(90-1) <The praise of a canticle for David.> He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.
(90-2) He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.
(90-3) For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.
(90-4) He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.
(90-5) His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.
(90-6) Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.
