Translation:

He who sits under the umbrella of the highest and remains under the shadow of the almighty speaks to the Lord. My confidence and my fortress, my God in whom I trust. For he saves me from the rope of the hunter and from the harmful pestilence! He will cover you with his wings, and your confidence will be under his wings. His truth is screen and shield that you do not have to be scared of the terror of the night. Psalm 91.
