She Who Dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High Shall Abide Under the Shadow of the Almighty is a 2003 double album by Sinéad O'Connor.

It is a two-CD set. The first CD collects several rare tracks O'Connor recorded as B-sides, for soundtrack albums or in collaboration with other artists, and the second disc contains a live concert.

The album's title is a modification of Psalm 91, verse 1. This is the same psalm that gave O'Connor's first album, The Lion and the Cobra, its name. The album sold 100,000 copies worldwide.
