1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High ♦︎
and abides under the shadow of the Almighty,
2 Shall say to the Lord, My refuge and my stronghold, ♦︎
my God, in whom I put my trust.
3 For he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler ♦︎
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with his wings
and you shall be safe under his feathers; ♦︎
his faithfulness shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, ♦︎
nor of the arrow that flies by day;
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, ♦︎
nor of the sickness that destroys at noonday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side
and ten thousand at your right hand, ♦︎
yet it shall not come near you.
8 Your eyes have only to behold ♦︎
to see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge ♦︎
and the Most High your stronghold,
10 There shall no evil happen to you, ♦︎
neither shall any plague come near your tent.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, ♦︎
to keep you in all your ways.
12 They shall bear you in their hands, ♦︎
lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; ♦︎
the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 Because they have set their love upon me,
therefore will I deliver them; ♦︎
I will lift them up, because they know my name.
15 They will call upon me and I will answer them; ♦︎
I am with them in trouble,
I will deliver them and bring them to honour.
16 With long life will I satisfy them ♦︎
and show them my salvation.
1 The Lord is king and has put on glorious apparel; ♦︎
the Lord has put on his glory
and girded himself with strength.
2 He has made the whole world so sure ♦︎
that it cannot be moved.
3 Your throne has been established from of old; ♦︎
you are from everlasting.
4 The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
the floods have lifted up their voice; ♦︎
the floods lift up their pounding waves.
5 Mightier than the thunder of many waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea, ♦︎
the Lord on high is mightier.
6 Your testimonies are very sure; ♦︎
holiness adorns your house, O Lord, for ever.
