Psalm 91

1 Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High Will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say to Jehovah: “You are my refuge and my stronghold, My God in whom I trust.”

3 For he will rescue you from the trap of the birdcatcher, From the destructive pestilence.

4 With his pinions he will cover you, And under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness will be a large shield and a protective wall.

5 You will not fear the terrors of the night, Nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 Nor the pestilence that stalks in the gloom, Nor the destruction that ravages at midday.

7 A thousand will fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But to you it will not come near.

8 You will only see it with your eyes As you witness the punishment of the wicked.

9 Because you said: “Jehovah is my refuge,” You have made the Most High your dwelling;

10 No disaster will befall you, And no plague will come near your tent.

11 For he will give his angels a command concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.

12 They will carry you on their hands, So that you may not strike your foot against a stone.

13 On the young lion and the cobra you will tread; You will trample underfoot the maned lion and the big snake.

14 God said: “Because he has affection for me, I will rescue him. I will protect him because he knows my name.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in distress. I will rescue him and glorify him.

16 I will satisfy him with long life, And I will cause him to see my acts of salvation.”
