He who dwells in the help of the Most High, shall rest under the shelter of the God of heaven.
He shall say to the Lord, “You are my defender and my refuge: my God; I will hope in Him.”
For He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter, and from troublesome matter.
He shall overshadow you in the midst of His shoulders, and you shall hope under His wings:
His truth shall encompass you as a shield. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night;
nor of an arrow flying in the day;
nor of a matter walking in darkness;
nor of calamity and demon of noon‑day.
A thousand shall fall at your left hand, and ten thousand at your right hand;
but they shall not be able to come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you observe,
and see the reward of sinners.
For You, O Lord, are my hope.
You have made the Most High your refuge.
No evil things shall come upon you, and no plague shall draw near to your dwelling.
For He shall give his angels charge concerning you, to keep you in all your ways.
They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you stumble Your foot against a stone.
You shall tread on the serpent and basilisk:
and You shall trample on the lion and dragon.
For he has hoped in Me, and I shall deliver him:
I shall protect him, because he has known My name.
He shall beseech Me, and I shall hear him:
I am with him in affliction; and I shall deliver him, and glorify him.
I shall satisfy him with length of days, and show him My salvation.
