1 He who dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High, Under the shadow of the Almighty shall abide.
2 I will say to Jehovah, |Thou art my hope and my fortress:| He is my God; I will hope in him.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, From the noxious pestilence:
4 With his wings he shall protect thee; And under his feathers thou shalt be safe; Thy shield and thy buckler shall be his truth.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid at the terror of the night; At the arrow which flieth by day;
6 At the destruction which in darkness walketh: At the pestilence which wasteth at noon-day.
7 There shall fall at thy side a thousand, And ten thousand at thy right hand: To thee it shall not come nigh.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And the reward of the ungodly thou shalt see.
9 Because thou, O Jehovah! art my protection; The Most High thou hast made thy refuge.
10 There shall not befall thee [any] evil, And the plague shall not come nigh thy tabernacle:
11 For to his angels he hath given charge concerning thee, To keep thee in all thy ways.
12 Upon their hands they shall bear thee, Lest thou dash against a stone thy foot.
13 Over the lion and asp thou shalt walk; Thou shalt tread upon the young lion and dragon.
14 Because on me he hath reposed, I will deliver him; I will exalt him because he hath known my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him: With him will I be in trouble; I will deliver him, and will glorify him.
16 With length of days will I satisfy him, And will show him my salvation.
