The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or before the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High [El Elyon] shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty [El Shaddai].
I will say of the LORD [Yahweh], He is my refuge and my fortress: my God [Elohim]; in Him will I trust.
Surely He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover me with His feathers, and under His wings shall I trust: His truth shall be my shield and buckler.
