Good News Translation
God Our Protector
1Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,
2can say to him,
“You are my defender and protector.
You are my God; in you I trust.”
3He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
and from all deadly diseases.
4He will cover you with his wings;
you will be safe in his care;
his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
5You need not fear any dangers at night
or sudden attacks during the day
6or the plagues that strike in the dark
or the evils that kill in daylight.
7A thousand may fall dead beside you,
ten thousand all around you,
but you will not be harmed.
8You will look and see
how the wicked are punished.
9You have made the Lord your+ defender,
the Most High your protector,
10and so no disaster will strike you,
no violence will come near your home.
to protect you wherever you go.
to keep you from hurting your feet on the stones.
fierce lions and poisonous snakes.
14God says, “I will save those who love me
and will protect those who acknowledge me as Lord.
15When they call to me, I will answer them;
when they are in trouble, I will be with them.
I will rescue them and honor them.
16I will reward them with long life;
I will save them.”
