Praise of a Song, by David.1 He that dwells in the help of the Highest, shall sojourn under the shelter of the God of heaven. 2He shall say to the Lord, You are my helper and my refuge; my God; I will trust in Him. 3For He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, from every troublesome matter. 4He shall overshadow you with His shoulders, and You shall trust under His wings; His truth shall cover you with a shield. 5You shall not be afraid of terror by night; nor of the arrow flying by day; 6nor of the evil thing that walks in darkness; nor of calamity, and the evil spirit at noonday. 7A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. 8Only with your eyes shall you observe and see the reward of sinners. 9For You, O Lord, are my hope; You, my soul, have made the Most High your refuge. 10No evils shall come upon you, and no scourge shall draw near to your dwelling. 11For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. 12They shall bear you up on their hands, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone. 13You shall tread on the asp and basilisk; and you shall trample on the lion and dragon. 14For he has hoped in Me, and I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he has known My name. 15He shall call upon Me, and I will hearken to him; I am with him in affliction; and I will deliver him, and glorify him. 16I will satisfy him with length of days, and show him My salvation.
