Psalm 91 (New King James Version)
1] He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2] I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." 3] Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4] He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. 5] You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6] Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7] A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. 8] Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. 9] Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10] No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11] For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12] In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13] You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. 14] "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15] He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16] With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."
