Psalm 91
King James BibleHolman Christian Standard Bible
1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.1The one who lives under the protection of the Most High dwells in the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.2I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.3He Himself will deliver you from the hunter's net, from the destructive plague.
4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.4He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield.
5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;5You will not fear the terror of the night, the arrow that flies by day,
6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.6the plague that stalks in darkness, or the pestilence that ravages at noon.
7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.7Though a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, the pestilence will not reach you.
8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.8You will only see it with your eyes and witness the punishment of the wicked.
9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;9Because you have made the LORD--my refuge, the Most High--your dwelling place,
10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.10no harm will come to you; no plague will come near your tent.
11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.11For He will give His angels orders concerning you, to protect you in all your ways.
12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.12They will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.13You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the young lion and the serpent.
14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.14Because he is lovingly devoted to Me, I will deliver him; I will protect him because he knows My name.
15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.15When he calls out to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will rescue him and give him honor.
16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.16I will satisfy him with a long life and show him My salvation.
