Psalms - Chapter 91

1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.


2

I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."


3

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.


4

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.


5

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,


6

nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.


7

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.


8

You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.


9

If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--


10

then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.


11

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;


12

they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.


13

You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.


14

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.


15

He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.


16

With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
