PSALM 91[D] Security Under God’s Protection 91 I 1You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,[E] who abide in the shade of the Almighty,[F] 2Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.” 3He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare, from the destroying plague, 4He will shelter you with his pinions, and under his wings you may take refuge; his faithfulness is a protecting shield. 5You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, 6Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the plague that ravages at noon. 7Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, near you it shall not come. 8You need simply watch; the punishment of the wicked you will see. 9Because you have the LORD for your refuge and have made the Most High your stronghold, 10No evil shall befall you, no affliction come near your tent. 11[G]For he commands his angels with regard to you, to guard you wherever you go. 12With their hands they shall support you, lest you strike your foot against a stone. 13You can tread upon the asp and the viper, trample the lion and the dragon. II 14Because he clings to me I will deliver him; because he knows my name I will set him on high. 15He will call upon me and I will answer; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and give him honor. 16With length of days I will satisfy him, and fill him with my saving power.
