1Those who dwell within the shelter of the Most High who is God;
They’ll abide within the shadow of the true Almighty God.
2I will say of Him, the Lord, “He is my refuge, whom I trust;
He’s my God, my strength and fortress, in Him I will put my trust.”
3Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and pestilence;
4With His feathers He will cover, and will be your sure defense.
You will find your constant refuge in the shadow of His wings,
And His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart in all things.
5You won’t fear the night’s dark terror, nor the arrow in the day,
6Nor the pestilence of darkness, nor the plague’s destructive way.
7Though a thousand at your side fall, or ten thousand at your hand,
8You won’t be harmed; you’ll just see how all the wicked do not stand.
9The Most High—if He’s your dwelling—if the Lord’s your confidence,
10Then no harm will come upon you, nor disaster near your tents.
11For His angels will surround you, guard you in your ways alone.
12They will lift you in their hands so that your foot won’t strike a stone.
13You will tread upon the lion, and the cobra without fear;
You will trample the great lion, and the serpent who comes near.
14The Lord says, “Because he loves Me, I will rescue him from shame;
I’ll protect him from all danger—he acknowledges My name.
15“He will call to Me—I’ll answer; when he cries out, I will hear.
I’ll deliver him with honor; in his trouble I’ll be near.
16With long life, I’ll satisfy him, till the time his days will cease;
I will show him My salvation—he will dwell within My peace.”
