When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.
Not one of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleeps; not a belt is loosened at the waist, not a sandal strap is broken.
who led them through the depths? Like a horse in open country, they did not stumble;
