New International Version
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
King James Bible
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Darby Bible Translation
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou find refuge: his truth is a shield and buckler.
World English Bible
He will cover you with his feathers. Under his wings you will take refuge. His faithfulness is your shield and rampart.
Young's Literal Translation
With His pinion He covereth thee over, And under His wings thou dost trust, A shield and buckler is His truth.
Psalm 91:4 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He shall cover thee with his feathers - He shall act towards thee as the hen does to her brood, - take thee under his wings when birds of prey appear, and also shelter thee from chilling blasts. This is a frequent metaphor in the sacred writings; see Psalm 17:8 (note), Psalm 57:1 (note), Psalm 61:4 (note), and the notes on them. The Septuagint has Εν τοις μεταφρενοις αυτου επισκιασει σοι· He will overshadow thee between his shoulders; alluding to the custom of parents carrying their weak or sick children on their backs, and having them covered even there with a mantle. Thus the Lord is represented carrying the Israelites in the wilderness. See Deuteronomy 32:11-12 (note), where the metaphor is taken from the eagle.
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler - His revelation; his Bible. That truth contains promises for all times and circumstances; and these will be invariably fulfilled to him that trusts in the Lord. The fulfillment of a promise relative to defense and support is to the soul what the best shield is to the body.

"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.
May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge."
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
Take up shield and armor; arise and come to my aid.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
Do not withhold your mercy from me, LORD; may your love and faithfulness always protect me.
