7 From the days of your fathers you have turned away from my ordinances, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says Yahweh of Armies. But you say, How shall we return? 8 Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me! But you say, How have we robbed you? In tithes and offerings. 9 You are cursed with the curse; for you rob me, even this whole nation. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and test me now in this, says Yahweh of Armies, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there will not be room enough for. 11 I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast its fruit before its time in the field, says Yahweh of Armies. 12 All nations shall call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says Yahweh of Armies.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of Yahweh, He is my refuge and my fortress;
my God, in whom I trust.
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler,
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers.
Under his wings you will take refuge.
His faithfulness is your shield and rampart.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day,
nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
nor of the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand;
but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes,
and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Yahweh your refuge,
and the Most High your dwelling place,
no evil shall happen to you,
neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
For he will put his angels in charge of you,
to guard you in all your ways.
They will bear you up in their hands,
so that you won’t dash your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and cobra.
You will trample the young lion and the serpent underfoot.
Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him.
I will set him on high, because he has known my name.
He will call on me, and I will answer him.
I will be with him in trouble.
I will deliver him, and honor him.
I will satisfy him with long life,
and show him my salvation.
But what does Scripture say? The word is near, in your mouth and in your heart. This is the word of faith, which we are preaching. For if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and if you believe in your heart that God has raised him up from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart, we believe unto justice; but with the mouth, confession is unto salvation. For Scripture says: All those who believe in him shall not be confounded. For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. For the same Lord is over all, richly in all who call upon him. For all those who have called upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
