Psalm 91
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.1The one who lives in the shelter of the Most High, who rests 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.2will say to the LORD, "You are my refuge, my fortress, and my God in whom I trust!"
3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.3He will surely deliver you from the hunter's snare and 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.4With his feathers he will cover you, under his wings you will find safety. His truth is your shield and armor.
5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;5You need not fear terror that stalks in the night, the arrow that flies in the day,
6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.6plague that strikes in the darkness, or calamity that destroys at noon.
7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.7If a thousand fall at your side or ten thousand at your right hand, it will not overcome you.
8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.8Only observe it with your eyes, and you will see how the wicked are paid back.
9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;9"LORD, you are my refuge!" Because you chose the Most High as your dwelling place,
10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.10no evil will fall upon you, and no affliction will approach your tent,
11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.11for he will command his angels to protect you in all your ways.
12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.12With their hands they will lift you up so you will not trip over a stone.
13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.13You will stomp on lions and snakes; you will trample young lions and serpents.
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 has focused his love on 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 his distress. I will deliver him, and I will honor him.
16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.16I will satisfy him with long life; I will show him my deliverance.
