Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.

1 He who dwells in the ashelter of the Most High

Will abide in the bshadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say to the Lord, “My arefuge and my bfortress,

My God, in whom I ctrust!”

3 For it is He who delivers you from the asnare of the trapper

And from the deadly bpestilence.

4 He will acover you with His pinions,

And bunder His wings you may seek refuge;

His cfaithfulness is a dshield and bulwark.

5 You awill not be afraid of the bterror by night,

Or of the carrow that flies by day;

6 Of the apestilence that 1stalks in darkness,

Or of the bdestruction that lays waste at noon.

7 A thousand may fall at your side

And ten thousand at your right hand,

But ait shall not approach you.

8 You will only look on with your eyes

And asee the recompense of the wicked.

9 1For you have made the Lord, amy refuge,

Even the Most High, byour dwelling place.

10 aNo evil will befall you,

Nor will any plague come near your 1tent.

11 For He will give aHis angels charge concerning you,

To guard you in all your ways.

12 They will abear you up in their hands,

That you do not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will atread upon the lion and cobra,

The young lion and the 1serpent you will trample down.

14aBecause he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;

I will bset him securely on high, because he has cknown My name.

15 “He will acall upon Me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in 1trouble;

I will rescue him and bhonor him.

16 “With 1a along life I will satisfy him

And 2blet him see My salvation.”


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
