Bible: Psalm 91

Psalm 91 1 

91:1 As for you, the one who lives 2  in the shelter of the sovereign One, 3 

and resides in the protective shadow 4  of the mighty king 5 

91:2 I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold,

my God in whom I trust

91:3 he will certainly rescue you from the snare of the hunter 6 

and from the destructive plague.

91:4 He will shelter you 7  with his wings; 8 

you will find safety under his wings.

His faithfulness is like a shield or a protective wall. 9 

91:5 You need not fear the terrors of the night, 10 

the arrow that flies by day,

91:6 the plague that comes in the darkness,

or the disease that comes at noon. 11 

91:7 Though a thousand may fall beside you,

and a multitude on your right side,

it 12  will not reach you.

91:8 Certainly you will see it with your very own eyes

you will see the wicked paid back. 13 

91:9 For you have taken refuge in the Lord,

my shelter, the sovereign One. 14 

91:10 No harm will overtake 15  you;

no illness 16  will come near your home. 17 

91:11 For he will order his angels 18 

to protect you in all you do. 19 

91:12 They will lift you up in their hands,

so you will not slip and fall on a stone. 20 

91:13 You will subdue 21  a lion and a snake; 22 

you will trample underfoot a young lion and a serpent.

91:14 The Lord says, 23 

“Because he is devoted to me, I will deliver him;

I will protect him 24  because he is loyal to me. 25 

91:15 When he calls out to me, I will answer him.

I will be with him when he is in trouble;

I will rescue him and bring him honor.

91:16 I will satisfy him with long life, 26 

and will let him see my salvation.
