1 He who lives under the shelter of the Most High will remain in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to Jehovah: »You are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.«
3 He is the one who will rescue you from the bird hunters trap fowlers snare and from deadly plagues.
4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge. His truth is your shield and armor.
5 You will not be afraid of the terror of the night and arrows that fly during the day,
6 plagues that roam the dark, epidemics that strike at noon.
7 They will not come near you, even though a thousand may fall dead beside you or ten thousand at your right side.
8 You only have to look with your eyes to see the punishment of wicked people.
9 »You, O Jehovah, are my refuge!« You have made the Most High your home.
10 No harm will come to you. No sickness will come near your house.
11 He will put his angels in charge of you to protect you in all your ways.
12 They will carry you in their hands so that you never strike your foot against a rock.
13 You will step on lions and cobras. You will trample underfoot young lions and snakes.
14 Because you love me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name.
15 When you call to me, I will answer you. I will be with you when you are in trouble. I will deliver you and honor you.
16 I will satisfy you with a long life. I will show you my salvation.
