Psalm 91
King James BibleNew American Standard Bible 1995
1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide 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.3For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence.
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 pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;5You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day;
6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.6Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.7A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not approach you.
8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.8You will only look on with your eyes And see the recompense of the wicked.
9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;9For you have made the LORD, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.10No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague 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 charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.
12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.12They will bear you up in their hands, That you do 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 upon the lion and cobra, The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
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.14"Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known 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.15"He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.
16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.16"With a long life I will satisfy him And let him see My salvation."
