1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most Highwill abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 2I will saySeptuagint He will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust."
3For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowlerand from the deadly pestilence. 4He will cover you with his pinions,and under his wings you will find refuge;his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. 5You will not fear the terror of the night,nor the arrow that flies by day, 6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7A thousand may fall at your side,ten thousand at your right hand,but it will not come near you. 8You will only look with your eyesand see the recompense of the wicked.
9Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place--the Most High, who is my refugeOr For you, O Lord, are my refuge! You have made the Most High your dwelling place--
10no evil shall be allowed to befall you,no plague come near your tent.
11For he will command his angels concerning youto guard you in all your ways. 12On their hands they will bear you up,lest you strike your foot against a stone. 13You will tread on the lion and the adder;the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14"Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;I will protect him, because he knows my name. 15When he calls to me, I will answer him;I will be with him in trouble;I will rescue him and honor him. 16With long life I will satisfy himand show him my salvation."
