|<< Psalm 91 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
He sits in the shelter of The Highest and is glorified in the shadow of God.
2He said to Lord Jehovah, “My trust, my refuge place, God upon whom I trust!”
3He is the one who shall deliver you from the snare of scandal and from worthless speech.
4In his feathers he shall deliver you and under his wings you shall have refuge; his truth shall surround you as a supply of armor.
5You shall not be afraid of the dread of the night or of the arrow that flies by day,
6Or of the account that walks in darkness or of the spirit that devastates at noonday.
7Thousands will fall by your side and 10,000 by your right hand, and they shall not come near you.
8But with your eyes alone you shall see the reward of the wicked.
9Because you are Lord Jehovah my trust, for you have set your dwelling on high,
10Evil shall not come near you and disease shall not come near your dwellings,
11For he will command his Angels concerning you, to keep you in all your ways
12And upon their arms they shall take you up, lest you strike your foot.
13Upon the viper and upon the cockatrice you shall tread, and you shall trample the lion and the dragon.
14Because he seeks me I shall save him; I shall strengthen him, because he knows my Name.
15He will call me and I shall answer him; I am with him in trouble; I shall strengthen him and I shall honor him.
16With length of days I shall satisfy him and I shall show him my salvation.
