The eyes of the LORD are upon those who love Him

Often I was in danger of death, but by these attainments I was saved.
Lively is the courage of those who fear the LORD, for they put their hope in their savior;
He who fears the LORD is never alarmed, never afraid; for the LORD is his hope.
Happy the soul that fears the LORD! In whom does he trust, and who is his support?
The eyes of the LORD are upon those who love him; he is their mighty shield and strong support, A shelter from the heat, a shade from the noonday sun, a guard against stumbling, a help against falling.
He buoys up the spirits, brings a sparkle to the eyes, gives health and life and blessing.

Sirach NAB (Ecclesiasticus) Douay-Rheims

True confidence is founded on knowledge and experience (Sirach 34:9-12), and above all on the fear of the Lord, with its accompanying blessings of divine assistance and protection (Sirach 34:13-17).
