|Security of Him Who Trust in Justice|
| ||HE that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High|
Shall 1 abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
| ||I will say of Jehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress;|
My God, in whom I trust.
| ||For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,|
And from the deadly pestilence.
| ||He will cover thee with his pinions,|
And under his wings shalt thou take refuge:
His truth is a shield and a buckler.
| ||Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night,|
Nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
| ||For the pestilence that walketh in darkness,|
Nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
| ||A thousand shall fall at thy side,|
And ten thousand at thy right hand;
But it shall not come nigh thee.
| ||Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold,|
And see the reward of the wicked.
| ||For 2 thou, O Jehovah, art my refuge!|
Thou hast made the Most High thy habitation;
| ||There shall no evil befall thee,|
Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
| ||For he will give his angels charge over thee,|
To keep thee in all thy ways.
| ||They shall bear thee up in their hands,|
Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
| ||Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:|
The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under foot.
| ||Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:|
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
| ||He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;|
I will be with him in trouble:
I will deliver him, and honor him.
| ||With long life will I satisfy him,|
And show him my salvation.
