Psalms 91

My Refuge and My Fortress

1 He who dwells in a  the shelter of the Most High
will abide in b  the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say
Septuagint He will say
to the  Lord, “My d  refuge and my e  fortress,
my God, in whom I f  trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from g  the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will h  cover you with his pinions,
and under his i  wings you will j  find refuge;
his k  faithfulness is l  a shield and buckler.
5 m  You will not fear n  the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8You will only look with your eyes
and o  see the recompense of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the  Lord your p  dwelling place
the Most High, who is my q  refuge
Or For you, O  Lord, are my refuge! You have made the Most High your dwelling place

10 s  no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
t  no plague come near your tent.
11 u  For he will command his v  angels concerning you
to w  guard you in all your ways.
12On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you x  strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread on y  the lion and the z  adder;
the young lion and aa  the serpent you will ab  trample underfoot.
14 Because he ac  holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he ad  knows my name.
15When he ae  calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and af  honor him.
16With ag  long life I will satisfy him
and ah  show him my salvation.”
