But the one who listens to me will live in safety,
and will be at ease from the dread of evil.” Bible see other translations

“will live in safety.” This is one of the many “ideal” promises in the Word of God which would be fulfilled here on earth today if we lived in a godly world with godly people. We do not, so this promise will be fully fulfilled in the future.
