91Psalms

1 You that live in the shelter of the Most High
and lodge under the shadow of the Almighty,

God our Protector. Psalm 91(v90)
2 who say, 'The LORD is my safe retreat,
my God the fastness in which I trust';

 
3 he himself will snatch you away
from fowler's snare or raging tempest.

 
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and you shall find safety beneath his wings;

 
5 you shall not fear the hunters' trap by night
or the arrow that flies by day,

 
6 the pestilence that stalks in darkness
or the plague raging at noonday.

 
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand close at hand,
but you it shall not touch;
his truth Or his arm will be your shield and your rampart his truth ... rampart: transposed from end of v4.

 
8 With your own eyes you shall see all this;
you shall watch the punishment of the wicked.

 
9 For you, the LORD is a prob. rdg, Heb my safe retreat;
you have made the Most High your refuge.

 
10 No disaster shall befall you,
no calamity shall come upon your home.

 
11 For he has charged his angels
to guard you wherever you go,

 
12 to lift you on their hands
for fear you should strike your foot against a stone.

 
13 You shall step on asp and cobra,
you shall tread safely on snake and serpent.

 
14 Because his love is set on me, I will deliver him;
I will lift him beyond danger, for he knows me by my name.

 
15 When he calls upon me, I will answer;
I will be with him in time of trouble;
I will rescue him and bring him to honour.

 
16 I will satisfy him with long life
to enjoy the fullness of my salvation.
