Assurance of God’s Protection

1You who live in the shelter of the Most High,

who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,

2will 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 fowler

and 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,

or the arrow that flies by day,

6or the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

or 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 eyes

and see the punishment of the wicked.

9Because you have made the Lord your refuge,

the Most High your dwelling place,

10no evil shall befall you,

no scourge come near your tent.

11For he will command his angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

12On their hands they will bear you up,

so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.

13You will tread on the lion and the adder,

the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

14Those who love me, I will deliver;

I will protect those who know my name.

15When they call to me, I will answer them;

I will be with them in trouble,

I will rescue them and honor them.

16With long life I will satisfy them,

and show them my salvation.
