Psalm 91 (Amplifed Bible)

1 - He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no enemy can withstand].

2 - I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”

3 - For He will save you from the trap of the fowler, And from the deadly pestilence.

4 - He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

5 - You will not be afraid of the terror of night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day

6 - Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Nor of the destruction (sudden death) that lays waste at noon.

7 - A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But danger will not come near you.

8 - You will only [be a spectator as you] look on with your eyes And witness the [divine] repayment of the wicked [as you watch safely from the shelter of the Most High].

9 - Because you have made the Lord, [who is] my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10 - No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.

11 - For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12 - They will lift you up in their hands, So that you do not [even] strike your foot against a stone.

13 - You will tread upon the lion and cobra;The young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 - “Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him; I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name [he confidently trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].

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.

16 – “With a long life I will satisfy him And I will let him see My salvation.”
