1 Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High Will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to Jehovah: “You are my refuge and my stronghold, My God in whom I trust.”
3 For he will rescue you from the trap of the birdcatcher, From the destructive pestilence.
4 With his pinions he will cover you, And under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness will be a large shield and a protective wall.
5 You will not fear the terrors of the night, Nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor the pestilence that stalks in the gloom, Nor the destruction that ravages at midday.
7 A thousand will fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But to you it will not come near.
8 You will only see it with your eyes As you witness the punishment of the wicked.
9 Because you said: “Jehovah is my refuge,” You have made the Most High your dwelling;
10 No disaster will befall you, And no plague will come near your tent.
11 For he will give his angels a command concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.
12 They will carry you on their hands, So that you may not strike your foot against a stone.
13 On the young lion and the cobra you will tread; You will trample underfoot the maned lion and the big snake.
14 God said: “Because he has affection for me, I will rescue him. I will protect him because he knows my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in distress. I will rescue him and glorify him.
16 I will satisfy him with long life, And I will cause him to see my acts of salvation.”
