He that dwelleth in the help of the Most High shall abide in the shelter of the
God of heaven. He shall say unto the Lord: `Thou art my helper and my refuge.
He is my God, and I will hope in Him.’ For He shall deliver thee from the snare
of the hunters and from every troubling word. With His shoulders will He
overshadow thee, and under His wings shalt thou have hope. With a shield will
His truth encompass thee; thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor
for the arrow that flieth by day, nor for the thing that walketh in darkness,
nor for the mishap and demon of noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy
side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but unto thee shall it not come nigh.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and thou shalt see the reward of
sinners. For Thou, O Lord, art my hope. Thou madest the Most High thy refuge;
no evils shall come nigh thee, and no scourge shall draw nigh unto thy
dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all
thy ways. On their hands shall they bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash
thy foot against a stone.
Upon the asp and basilisk shalt
thou tread, and thou shalt trample upon the lion and dragon. `For he hath set
his hope on Me, and I will deliver him; I will shelter him because he hath
known My name. He shall cry unto Me, and I will hearken unto him. I am with him
in affliction, and I will rescue him and glorify him. With length of days will
I satisfy him, and I will show him My salvation.’
