1 As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the sovereign One, and resides in the protective shadow of the mighty king --
1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
1 The one who lives in the shelter of the Most High, who rests in the shadow of the Almighty,
2 I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold, my God in whom I trust --
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
2 will say to the LORD, "You are my refuge, my fortress, and my God in whom I trust!"
3 he will certainly rescue you from the snare of the hunter and from the destructive plague.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
3 He will surely deliver you from the hunter's snare and from the destructive plague.
4 He will shelter you with his wings; you will find safety under his wings. His faithfulness is like a shield or a protective wall.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
4 With his feathers he will cover you, under his wings you will find safety. His truth is your shield and armor.
5 You need not fear the terrors of the night, the arrow that flies by day,
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
5 You need not fear terror that stalks in the night, the arrow that flies in the day,
6 the plague that comes in the darkness, or the disease that comes at noon.
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
6 plague that strikes in the darkness, or calamity that destroys at noon.
7 Though a thousand may fall beside you, and a multitude on your right side, it will not reach you.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
7 If a thousand fall at your side or ten thousand at your right hand, it will not overcome you.
8 Certainly you will see it with your very own eyes -- you will see the wicked paid back.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
8 Only observe it with your eyes, and you will see how the wicked are paid back.
9 For you have taken refuge in the Lord, my shelter, the sovereign One.
9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
9 "LORD, you are my refuge!" Because you chose the Most High as your dwelling place,
10 No harm will overtake you; no illness will come near your home.
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
10 no evil will fall upon you, and no affliction will approach your tent,
11 For he will order his angels to protect you in all you do.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
11 for he will command his angels to protect you in all your ways.
12 They will lift you up in their hands, so you will not slip and fall on a stone.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
12 With their hands they will lift you up so you will not trip over a stone.
13 You will subdue a lion and a snake; you will trample underfoot a young lion and a serpent.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
13 You will stomp on lions and snakes; you will trample young lions and serpents.
14 The Lord says, "Because he is devoted to me, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he is loyal to me.
14 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.
14 Because he has focused his love on me, I will deliver him. I will protect him because he knows my name.
15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him honor.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him. I will be with him in his distress. I will deliver him, and I will honor him.
16 I will satisfy him with long life, and will let him see my salvation.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
16 I will satisfy him with long life; I will show him my deliverance. A Psalm. A song for the Sabbath Day
