He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
abides under the shadow of the Almighty.
He shall say to the Lord,
You are my refuge and my stronghold,
my God in whom I put my trust.
He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter
and from the deadly pestilence.
He shall cover you with his pinions, and you shall find refuge under his wings;
his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of any terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the plague that stalks in the darkness,
nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.
A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand,
but it shall not come near you.
Your eyes have only to behold
to see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your refuge,
and the Most High your habitation,
There shall no evil happen to you,
neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over you,
to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you in their hands,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and adder;
you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.
Because he is bound to me in love, therefore will I deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my Name.
5 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;
I am with him in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him to honor.
16 With long life will I satisfy him,
and show him my salvation.
