He will cover you with His feathers;
you will take refuge under His wings.
His faithfulness will be a protective shield.
He watches over His nest like an eagle
and hovers over His young;
He spreads His wings, catches him,
and lifts him up on His pinions.
Protect me as the pupil of Your eye;
hide me in the shadow of Your wings
God, Your faithful love is so valuable
that people take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
For the choir director: “Do Not Destroy.” A Davidic Miktam. When he fled before Saul into the cave.Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me,
for I take refuge in You.
I will seek refuge in the shadow of Your wings
until danger passes.
I will live in Your tent forever
and take refuge under the shelter of Your wings.Selah
because You are my helper;
I will rejoice in the shadow of Your wings.
Look! It will be like an eagle soaring upward, then swooping down and spreading its wings over Bozrah. In that day the hearts of Edom’s warriors will be like the heart of a woman with contractions.
