1 You who live in the shelter of 'Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow
2 who say to ADONAI, "My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!"
3 He will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities;
4 He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His truth is a shield and protection.
5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies
6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won't
come near you.
8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished.
9 For you have made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.
10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent;
11 for He will order His angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go.
12 They will carry you in their hands, so that you won't trip on a stone.
13 You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.
"Because he loves me, I will rescue him; because he knows my name, I will protect him.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble. I will extricate him and bring him honor.
16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation." Psalm 91
