Psalm 91

My Refuge and My Fortress

1 He a who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide b under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 c I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust."

3 Surely d He shall deliver you from the snare of the 1 fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 e He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and 2 buckler.
5 f You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only g with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the LORD, who is h my refuge,
Even the Most High, i your dwelling place,
10 j No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11 k For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall 3 bear you up,
l Lest you 4 dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will 5 set him on high, because he has m known My name.
15 He shall n call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be o with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With 6 long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation."
