Psalm 91

1 Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High:
    who abide under the shadow of the Almighty,
2 They will say to the Lord 'You are my refuge and my stronghold:
    my God in whom I trust.'
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the hunter:
    and from the destroying curse.
4 He will cover you with his wings, and you will be safe under his feathers:
    his faithfulness will be your shield and defence.
5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night:
    or of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Of the pestilence that walks about in darkness:
    or the plague that destroys at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall beside you, and ten thousand at your right hand:
    but you it shall not touch;
8 Your own eyes shall see:
    and look on the reward of the ungodly.
9 The Lord himself is your refuge:
    you have made the Most High your stronghold.
10 Therefore no harm will befall you:
    nor will any scourge come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels:
    to keep you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands:
    lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder:
    the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
14 'You have set your love upon me,' says the Lord, 'and therefore I will deliver you:
    I will lift you out of danger, because you have known my name.
15 'When you call upon me I will answer you:
    I will be with you in trouble, I will rescue you and bring you to honour.
16 'With long life I will satisfy you:
    and fill you with my salvation.'
