He who dwells in a the shelter of the Most High
will abide in b the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say 1 to the Lord, "My c refuge and my d fortress,
my God, in whom I e trust."
For he will deliver you from f the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will g cover you with his pinions,
and under his h wings you will i find refuge;
his j faithfulness is k a shield and buckler.
5 l You will not fear m the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes
and n see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your o dwelling place -
the Most High, who is my c refuge 2 -
10 p no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
q no plague come near your tent.
r For he will command his s angels concerning you
to t guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you u strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on v the lion and the w adder;
the young lion and x the serpent you will y trample underfoot.
"Because he z holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he a knows my name.
15 When he b calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and c honor him.
16 With d long life I will satisfy him
and e show him my salvation."
