Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 91:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that dwelleth in the secret place - The Targum intimates that this is a dialogue between David, Solomon, and Jehovah. Suppose we admit this, - then
David asserts: "He who dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty," Psalm 91:1.
Solomon answers: "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in him will I trust," Psalm 91:2.
David replies, and tells him what blessings he shall receive from God if he abide faithful, Psalm 91:3-13.
Then the Supreme Being is introduced, and confirms all that David had spoken concerning Solomon, Psalm 91:14-16 : and thus this sacred and instructive dialogue ends.
In the secret place of the Most High - Spoken probably in reference to the Holy of holies. He who enters legitimately there shall be covered with the cloud of God's glory - the protection of the all-sufflcient God. This was the privilege of the high priest only, under the law: but under the new covenant all believers in Christ have boldness to enter tnto the holiest by the blood of Jesus; and those who thus enter are safe from every evil.

This Psalm is supposed by some to have been composed by Moses on the same occasion as the preceding; but others think it was written by David, after his advice to his son Solomon.

"Neither shall any plague come near thy dwelling" (Ps. xci. 10). We know what it is to be fireproof, to be waterproof: but it is a greater thing to be proof against sin. It is possible to be so filled with the Spirit and presence of Jesus that all the shafts of the enemy glance off our heavenly armor; that all the burrs and thistles which grow on the wayside fail to stick to our heavenly robes; that all the noxious vapors of the pit disappear before the warm breath of the Holy Ghost, and we walk …

The Answer to Trust
God's Merciful Guardianship of his People. --Ps. Xci.
When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
A prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
