Psalm 91

1As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the sovereign One,

and resides in the protective shadow of the mighty king –

2I say this about the Lord, my shelter and my stronghold,

my God in whom I trust –

3he will certainly rescue you from the snare of the hunter

and from the destructive plague.

4He will shelter you with his wings;

you will find safety under his wings.

His faithfulness is like a shield or a protective wall.

5You need not fear the terrors of the night,

the arrow that flies by day,

6the plague that comes in the darkness,

or the disease that comes at noon.

7Though a thousand may fall beside you,

and a multitude on your right side,

it will not reach you.

8Certainly you will see it with your very own eyes –

you will see the wicked paid back.

9For you have taken refuge in the Lord,

my shelter, the sovereign One.

10No harm will overtake you;

no illness will come near your home.

11For he will order his angels

to protect you in all you do.

12They will lift you up in their hands,

so you will not slip and fall on a stone.

13You will subdue a lion and a snake;

you will trample underfoot a young lion and a serpent.

14The Lord says,

“Because he is devoted to me, I will deliver him;

I will protect him because he is loyal to me.

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

I will be with him when he is in trouble;

I will rescue him and bring him honor.

16I will satisfy him with long life,

and will let him see my salvation.
