Qui habitat.

Whoso dwelleth under the defence of the | Most High,

* shall abide under the | shadow• of the Almighty.

2 I will say unto the LORD, Thou art my hope, | and my stronghold;

* my God, in | him will I trust.

3 For he shall deliver thee from the snare | of the hunter,

* and | from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe | under• his feathers;

* his faithfulness and truth shall | be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for any | terror• by night,

* nor for the | arrow• that •flieth• by day;

6 For the pestilence that | walketh• in darkness,

* nor for the sickness that de- | -stroyeth in the noon-day.

7 A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at | thy right hand;

* but it shall | not come nigh thee.

8 Yea, with thine eyes shalt | thou behold,

* and see the re- | -ward of the ungodly.

9 For thou, LORD, | art my hope;

* thou hast set thine house of de- | -fence very high.

10 There shall no evil happen | unto thee,

* neither shall any | plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge | over thee,

* to keep | thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee | in their hands,

* that thou hurt not thy | foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt go upon the | lion• and adder:

* the young lion and the dragon shalt thou | tread •under• thy feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I de- | -liver him;

* I will set him up, because | he hath known my Name.

15 He shall call upon me, and | I will hear him;

* yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and | bring him to honour.

16 With long life will I | satis•fy him,

* and | show him my salvation.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
