He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High :
who abides under the shadow of the Almighty,
He will say to the Lord You are my refuge and my stronghold :
my God in whom I trust.
For he will deliver you from the snare of the hunter :
and from the destroying curse.
He will cover you with his wings,
and you will be safe under his feathers :
his faithfulness will be your shield and defence.
You shall not be afraid of any terror by night :
or of the arrow that flies by day,
Of the pestilence that walks about in darkness :
or the plague that destroys at noonday.
A thousand may fall beside you,
and ten thousand at your right hand :
but you it shall not touch;
Your own eyes shall see :
and look on the reward of the ungodly.
The Lord himself is your refuge :
you have made the Most High your stronghold.
Therefore no harm will befall you :
nor will any scourge come near your tent.
For he will command his angels :
to keep you in all your ways.
They will bear you up in their hands :
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the adder :
the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
He has set his love upon me,
and therefore I will deliver him :
I will lift him out of danger,
because he has known my name.
When he calls upon me I will answer him :
I will be with him in trouble,
I will rescue him and bring him to honour.
With long life I will satisfy him :
and fill him with my salvation.
