Psalm 91

1 Because we dwell in the secret place of the most High we shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2  We will say of the Lord, He is our refuge and our fortress: our God; in You do we trust.

3  Surely You shall deliver us from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4  You shall cover us with Your feathers, and under Your wings shall we trust: Your truth shall be our shield and buckler.

5  We will not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day;

6  Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at our sides, and ten thousand at our right hands; but it shall not come near us.

8 Only with our eyes shall we behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because we have made you the Lord, our refuge, even the most High, our habitation;

10 No evil shall befall us, neither shall any plague come near our dwelling.

11 For He shall give His angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways.

12 His angels shall bear us up in their hands, lest we dash our feet against a stone.

13 We shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall we trample under our feet.

14 Because we have set our love upon You, You will deliver us: You will set us on high, just because we know Your name.

15 We shall call upon You, and You will answer us: You will be with us in trouble; You will deliver us, and You will honor us.

16 With long life will You satisfy us, and show us Your salvation.
