WHOSO dwelleth under the defence of the Most High, * shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2  I will say unto the LORD, Thou art my hope, and my stronghold; * my God, in him will I trust.

3  For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, * and from the noisome pestilence.

4  He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his feathers; * his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5  Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, * nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6  For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, * nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.

7  A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand; * but it shall not come nigh thee.

8  Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, * and see the reward of the ungodly.

9  For thou, LORD, art my hope; * thou hast set thine house of defence very high.

10  There shall no evil happen unto thee, * neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, * to keep thee in all thy ways.

12  They shall bear thee in their hands, * that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.

13  Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: * the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.

14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; * I will set him up, because he hath known my Name.

15  He shall call upon me, and I will hear him; * yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour.

16  With long life will I satisfy him, * and show him my salvation.

Psalm 91
The Book Of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church
