JPS Tanakh 1917
1O thou that dwellest in the covert of the Most High,
And abidest in the shadow of the Almighty;
2I will say of the LORD, who is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust,
3That He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
And from the noisome pestilence.
4He will cover thee with His pinions,
And under His wings shalt thou take refuge;
His truth is a shield and a buckler.
5Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flieth by day;
6Of the pestilence that walketh in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7A thousand may fall at Thy side,
And ten thousand at Thy right hand;
It shall not come nigh thee.
8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold,
And see the recompense of the wicked.
9For thou hast made the LORD who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, thy habitation.
10There shall no evil befall thee,
Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
11For He will give His angels charge over thee,
To keep thee in all thy ways.
12They shall bear thee upon their hands,
Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and asp;
The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under feet.
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.
15He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him, and bring him to honour.
16With long life will I satisfy him,
And make Him to behold My salvation.’
