He that dwelleth in the secret place

Language: English after the Latin

[]
1  He that dwelleth in the secret place 
   of the most High shall abide 
   under the shadow of the Almighty.
2  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: 
   my God; in him will I trust.
3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
   and from the noisome pestilence.
4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings 
   shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; 
   nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; 
   nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, 
   and ten thousand at thy right hand; 
   but it shall not come nigh thee.
8  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold 
   and see the reward of the wicked.
9  Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, 
   even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall 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 up in their hands,
   lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: 
   the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
   I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
   I will be with him in trouble;
   I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, 
   and shew him my salvation.

Celui qui demeure dans l'endroit secret

Language: French (Français) after the English

[]
1  Celui qui demeure dans l'endroit secret 
   du très Haut logera 
   sous l'ombre du Tout-puissant.
2  Je dirai au Seigneur, Il est mon refuge et ma forteresse : 
   mon Dieu ; en lui j'ai confiance.
3  Sûrement il te délivrera du piège de l'oiseleur, 
   et de la peste fétide.
4  Il te couvrira de ses plumes et sous ses ailes tu auras confiance :
   sa vérité sera ta sauvegarde et ton bouclier.
5  Tu ne seras pas effrayé par la terreur de la nuit ;
   ni par la flèche qui vole le jour ;
6  Ni par la peste qui marche dans l'obscurité ; 
   ni par la destruction qui sévit à midi.
7  Un millier tombera à tes côtés, 
   et dix mille à ta droite ; 
   mais cela n'arrivera pas à toi.
8  Seulement avec tes yeux tu regarderas 
   et tu verras la récompense des méchants.
9  Parce que tu as fait du Seigneur, qui est mon refuge, 
   même le très Haut, ton habitation ;
10 Aucun démon ne tombera sur toi, 
   aucun fléau ne viendra sur ta demeure.
11 Car il donnera l'ordre à ses anges de veiller sur toi 
   pour te garder dans toutes tes voies.
12 Ils te porteront en haut dans leurs mains, 
   pour que tu ne jettes pas ton pied contre une pierre.
13 Tu piétineras le lion et la vipère : 
   le lionceau et le dragon seront foulés par tes pieds.
14 Parce qu'il a posé son amour sur moi, je le délivrerai : 
   je le mettrai très haut parce qu'il a connu mon nom.
15 Il m'appellera et je lui répondrai : 
   je serai avec lui dans la peine ;
   je le délivrerai et je l'honorerai.
16 Avec une longue vie je le satisferai 
   et lui montrerai mon salut.
