1 You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,a
my God, in whom I trust.”
and from the deadly pestilence;
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
or the arrow that flies by day,
or the destruction that wastes at noonday.
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge,b
the Most High your dwelling place,
no scourge come near your tent.
to guard you in all your ways.
so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.
the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
I will protect those who know my name.
I will be with them in trouble,
I will rescue them and honor them.
and show them my salvation.
