Safe in the Lord
1Those who go to God Most High for safety
will be protected by God All-Powerful.
2I will say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety and protection.
You are my God, and I trust you.”
3God will save you from hidden traps
and from deadly diseases.
4He will protect you like a bird
spreading its wings over its young.
His truth will be like your armor and shield.
5You will not fear any danger by night
or an arrow during the day.
6You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark
or sickness that strikes at noon.
7At your side 1,000 people may die,
or even 10,000 right beside you.
But you will not be hurt.
8You will only watch what happens.
You will see the wicked punished.
9The Lord is your protection.
You have made God Most High your place of safety.
10Nothing bad will happen to you.
No disaster will come to your home.
11He has put his angels in charge of you.
They will watch over you wherever you go.
12They will catch you with their hands.
And you will not hit your foot on a rock.
13You will walk on lions and cobras.
You will step on strong lions and snakes.
14The Lord says, “If someone loves me, I will save him.
I will protect those who know me.
15They will call to me, and I will answer them.
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them.
16I will give them a long, full life.
They will see how I can save.”
