Psalm 91

The Protection of the Most High

<1>The one who lives under the protection of the Most High

dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.a

2I will sayA concerning the Lord, who is my refuge and my fortress,

my God in whom I trust:a

3He himself will rescue you from the bird trap,a

from the destructive plague.

4He will cover you with his feathers;

you will take refuge under his wings.a

His faithfulness will be a protective shield.b

5You will not fear the terror of the night,

the arrow that flies by day,a

6the plague that stalks in darkness,

or the pestilence that ravages at noon.a

7Though a thousand fall at your side

and ten thousand at your right hand,

the pestilence will not reach you.a

8You will only see it with your eyes

and witness the punishment of the wicked.a

9Because you have made the Lord — my refuge,a

the Most High — your dwelling place,b

10no harm will come to you;

no plague will come near your tent.a

11For he will give his angels orders concerning you,

to protect you in all your ways.a

12They will support you with their hands

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.a

13You will tread on the lion and the cobra;

you will trample the young lion and the serpent.a

14Because he has his heart set on me,

I will deliver him;

I will protect him because he knows my name.a

15When he calls out to me, I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble.

I will rescue him and give him honor.a

16I will satisfy him with a long lifea

and show him my salvation.b
