27 The God of ancient times is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall drive away the enemy from before thee; and said, Destroy!
28 Israel dwelled in safety: the fountain of Jacob is solitary upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.
29 Happy art thou, O Israel who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Eternal, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars to thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.

Psalm 90 צ

1-6 A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. O Lord, thou hast been a refuge unto us from generation to generation.
Before the mountains were brought forth, ere thou hadst formed the Universe, from eternity unto eternity , thou art God.
Thou reducest man unto contrition, and sayest: Return, ye children of man.
For thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday, when it is passed, and as a watch in the night.
Thou carriest them away, whilst they are asleep, in the morning they are like grass which sprouteth. In the morning in bloometh and groweth; in the evening it is cut down and withered.
