Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place-- the Most High, who is my refuge--no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
A most remarkable passage, Lord. To Satan, a way of testing and tempting You; to me a wonderful promise of the sufficiency of Your love and care. To know, my Lord, that no evil will bring me down, no harm will damage my relationship with You for You are my dwelling place and Your angels are at my right and my left sides.
