1 He that dwells in the secret place
of the Most High shall abide
under the Almighty's shadow
while the sun burns hot outside.
2 I say to the LORD, "My refuge
and my most secure fortress,
my God, I will confide in Him
while the world is in distress."
3 For so He shall deliver thee
from the snare of the fowler
and from destructive diseases.
4 With His feathers He'll cover.
Under His wings you'll find refuge.
His truth is a shield and stay.
5 You shall not fear terror by night
nor arrow that flies by day,
6 nor disease that walks in darkness,
nor destruction at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at your side,
and ten thousand by thy way.
The thing shall not come nearby thee.
8 Only with your eyes behold,
and the wicked's reward you'll see
as it was in days of old.
9 Because You, LORD, are my refuge,
the Most High's your dwelling place,
10 there shall no evil befall thee,
neither plague come near your place
11 for He shall give His angels charge
to keep you where'er you go.
12 They shall bear thee up on their palms
lest your foot fall on a stone.
13 You'll tread on lion and viper.
The young lion and the snake
you will trample under your feet
though they try your faith to shake.
14 Because on Me he's set his love,
therefore I'll deliver him.
I will set him on high above
because he has known My name.
15 He'll call Me, and I'll answer him.
I'll be with him in trouble.
I'll deliver and honor him.
I will save him to the full.
16 With length of days I'll satisfy,
and I will cause him to see
My salvation to him applied
and the path to victory.

39 then hear thou in the heavens, the settled place of thy dwelling, and forgive, and do, and render unto every man according to all his ways, whose heart thou knowest (for thou, thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men),
40 that they may fear thee all the days that they live upon the land which thou gavest unto our fathers.
