The Psalter According to the Seventy

Psalm 90

A Canticle Praise of David. Without Superscription among the Hebrews.

He that dwelleth in the help of the Most High shall abide in the shelter of the God of heaven.
2 He shall say unto the Lord: Thou art my helper and my refuge. He is my God, and I will hope in Him.
3 For He shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunters and from every troubling word.
4 With His shoulders will He overshadow thee, and under His wings shalt thou have hope.
5 With a shield will His truth encompass thee; thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day,
6 Nor for the thing that walketh in darkness, nor for the mishap and demon of noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but unto thee shall it not come nigh.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and thou shalt see the reward of sinners.
9 For Thou, O Lord, art my hope. Thou madest the Most High thy refuge;
10 No evils shall come nigh thee, and no scourge shall draw nigh unto thy dwelling.
11 For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 On their hands shall they bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Upon the asp and basilisk shalt thou tread, and thou shalt trample upon the lion and dragon.
14 For he hath set his hope on Me, and I will deliver him; I will shelter him because he hath known My name.
15 He shall cry unto Me, and I will hearken unto him. I am with him in affliction, and I will rescue him and glorify him.
16 With length of days will I satisfy him, and I will show him My salvation.
