Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Emperor
will rest in the shadow of His might.
I will say of Him, He is my refuge and my fortress,
my Lord, in whom I trust.
Surely, He will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His hands,
and in His arms you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes,
and see the punishment of the wicked.
