91 Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High+
Will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.+
2 I will say to Jehovah: “You are my refuge and my stronghold,+
My God in whom I trust.”+
3 For he will rescue you from the trap of the birdcatcher,
From the destructive pestilence.
4 With his pinions he will cover* you,
And under his wings you will take refuge.+
His faithfulness+ will be a large shield+ and a protective wall.*
5 You will not fear the terrors of the night,+
Nor the arrow that flies by day,+
6 Nor the pestilence that stalks in the gloom,
Nor the destruction that ravages at midday.
7 A thousand will fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But to you it will not come near.+
8 You will only see it with your eyes
As you witness the punishment* of the wicked.
9 Because you said: “Jehovah is my refuge,”
You have made the Most High your dwelling;*+
10 No disaster will befall you,+
And no plague will come near your tent.
11 For he will give his angels+ a command concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.+
12 They will carry you on their hands,+
So that you may not strike your foot against a stone.+
13 On the young lion and the cobra you will tread;
You will trample underfoot the maned lion and the big snake.+
14 God said: “Because he has affection for me,* I will rescue him.+
I will protect him because he knows* my name.+
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.+
I will be with him in distress.+
I will rescue him and glorify him.
16 I will satisfy him with long life,+
And I will cause him to see my acts of salvation.”*+
