For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
Lord, the fear and terror that accompanies the failure of man's attempts to play at being You, saps the strength, destroys the resolve and reduces one to craven cowardice. But You hide me in the cleft of the Rock, shielding me with Your faithfulness, leading me into all righteousness and bringing me into Your joy and peace.
