“Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before you and cry to you in our distress, and you will hear and deliver us.”
2 Chronicles 20:9

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or the arrow that flies by day; a thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you.”
Psalm 91:1-7

“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.”
1 Corinthians 16:13
