will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
and protect you from deadly disease.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
and see how the wicked are punished.
if you make the Most High your shelter,
no plague will come near your home.
to protect you wherever you go.
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
I will protect those who trust in my name.
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
and give them my salvation.”
