St. Patrick’s Breastplate – Rewards of God

Stanza 6

Today I interpose all these powers between myself
And every harsh pitiless power which may come against my body and my soul,
Against the predictions of false prophets,
Against the black laws of paganism,
Against the crooked laws of heretics,
Against the encirclement of idolatry,
Against the spells of women and smiths and druids,
Against every knowledge which harms a man’s body and soul.
May Christ protect me today
Against poison, against burning, against drowning,
against wounding,
That many rewards may come to me.
