Quivering am I,

Is it

Apollo

Quivering am I

Apollo is the god of archery

No mortal halts me

He speaks like a god

Thus no words destroy me

He is the god of poetry which is basically the god of words.

Quivering am I,

I think you are a tongue which quivers while we speak.

no words destroy me,

The tongue is not harmed while we speak.

I am what can defend you with no end.

We defend ourselves by talking back when needed.

One's faith?

Quivering am I

as in this article (quiverfull)

no words destroy me

Faith is a matter of personal belief

I am what can defend you with no end

As long as it is believed
