Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior.
For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." Of David. A miktam. When he had fled from Saul into the cave. Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
