“I will say to the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress. His truth shall be thy shield. You shall not be afraid for the terror by night, nor the arrow that flies by day. A thousand shall fall at thy side, but it shall not come near you

For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep you in all your ways.
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him.
I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation” (Psalm 91)
