1 You can go to God Most-High to hide. You can go to the God All-Powerful for protection. 2 I say to the Lord, ”You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust you.” 3 God will save you from hidden dangers and dangerous diseases. 4 You can go to God for protection. He will protect you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies. God will be like a shield and a wall protecting you. 5 You will have nothing to fear at night. And you won’t be afraid of enemy arrows during the day. 6 You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark, or terrible sicknesses that come at noon. 7 You will defeat 1,000 enemies. Your own right hand will defeat 10,000 enemy soldiers. Your enemies will not even touch you! 8 Just look, and you will see that those wicked people are punished! 9 Why? Because you trust the Lord. You made God Most-High your place of safety. 10 Nothing bad will happen to you. There will be no diseases in your home. 11 God will command his angels for you, and they will protect you wherever you go. 12 Their hands will catch you, so that you will not hit your foot on a rock. 13 You will have power to walk on lions and poisonous snakes. 14 The Lord says, ”If a person trusts me, I will save him. I will protect my followers who worship my name. 15 My followers will call to me for help, and I will answer them. I will be with them when they have trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. 16 I will give my followers a long life. And I will save them.
