But You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts up my head.
[For the choir director. Of the servant of the LORD, David, who spoke the words of this song to the LORD on the day the LORD rescued him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said:] I love You, LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my mountain where I seek refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield. The LORD gives grace and glory; He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.
Surely our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.
After these events, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield; your reward will be very great.
His descendants will be powerful in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Do what is good, LORD, to the good, to those whose hearts are upright.
if you are pure and upright, then He will move even now on your behalf and restore the home where your righteousness dwells.
For the upright will inhabit the land, and those of integrity will remain in it;
Those with twisted minds are detestable to the LORD, but those with blameless conduct are His delight.
The one who lives with integrity will be helped, but one who distorts right and wrong will suddenly fall.
