Therefore prepare yourself and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed before their faces, lest I dismay you before them.
For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land – against the kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land.
They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you.
Behold, I give you the [power and] authority to trample on serpents [the devil and his evil angels] and scorpions [demons], and over all the power of the enemy [satan, whether in the spiritual or natural realm], and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
...Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler [the cunning devices of the devil] and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge [shielded by the force field of God’s presence]; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night [a secret invasion], nor for the arrow [rocket, missile] that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness [germ warfare], nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday [atomic warfare].
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you [supernatural protection]. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.
…No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways [a canopy of angels around us like a bubble]. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion [the counterfeit of the Lion of Judah, the devil going about as a roaring lion] and the cobra, the young lion, and the serpent you shall trample under foot.
…I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honour him. With long life [resurrection life] I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation [deliverance and triumphant victory]
