Security Under God's Protection

I

1You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,* who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,* 2Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.” w Pss 18, 3; 31, 3–4; 42, 10; 142, 6; 2 Sm 22, 3 . 3God will rescue you from the fowler's snare, from the destroying plague, 4Will shelter you with pinions, spread wings that you may take refuge; x Pss 17, 8; 36, 8; 57, 2; 63, 8; Dt 32, 11; Ru 2, 12; Mt 23, 37 . God's faithfulness is a protecting shield. 5You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, y Prv 3, 25; Song 3, 8 . 6Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the plague that ravages at noon. z Dt 32, 24 . 7Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, near you it shall not come. 8You need simply watch; the punishment of the wicked you will see. a Ps 92, 12 . 9You have the LORD for your refuge; you have made the Most High your stronghold. 10No evil shall befall you, no affliction come near your tent. b Prv 12, 21; Dt 7, 15 . 11For God commands the angels c 11–12: Mt 4, 6; Lk 4, 10f . * to guard you in all your ways. d Heb 1, 14 . 12With their hands they shall support you, lest you strike your foot against a stone. e Ps 121, 3; Prv 3, 23 . 13You shall tread upon the asp and the viper, trample the lion and the dragon. f Is 11, 8; Lk 10, 19 .

II

14Whoever clings to me I will deliver; whoever knows my name I will set on high. g Pss 9, 11; 119, 132 . 15All who call upon me I will answer; h Jer 33, 3; Zec 13, 9 .
