The Holy Bible – Knox Translation
The Book of Psalms
Content if thou be to live with the most High for thy defence, under his Almighty shadow abiding still,
him thy refuge, him thy stronghold thou mayst call, thy own God, in whom is all thy trust.
He it is will rescue thee from every treacherous lure, every destroying plague.
His wings for refuge, nestle thou shalt under his care,
his faithfulness thy watch and ward. Nothing shalt thou have to fear from nightly terrors,
from the arrow that flies by day-light, from pestilence that walks to and fro in the darkness, from the death that wastes under the noon.
Though a thousand fall at thy side, ten thousand at thy right hand, it shall never come next or near thee;
rather, thy eyes shall look about thee, and see the reward of sinners.
He, the Lord, is thy refuge; thou hast found a stronghold in the most High.
There is no harm that can befall thee, no plague that shall come near thy dwelling.
He has given charge to his angels concerning thee, to watch over thee wheresoever thou goest;
they will hold thee up with their hands lest thou shouldst chance to trip on a stone.
Thou shalt tread safely on asp and adder, crush lion and serpent under thy feet.
He trusts in me, mine it is to rescue him; he acknowledges my name, from me he shall have protection;
when he calls upon me, I will listen, in affliction I am at his side, to bring him safety and honour.
Length of days he shall have to content him, and find in me deliverance.
