91 Those who ·go to God Most High for safety [L dwell/sit in the shelter of God Most High] will ·be protected by [lodge in the shade/shadow of] the Almighty. 2 I will say to the Lord, “You are my ·place of safety [refuge] and ·protection [fortress]. You are my God and I ·trust [have confidence in] you.”
3 God will ·save [protect] you from ·hidden traps [L the snare of the fowler] and from deadly ·diseases [pestilence]. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you ·can hide [will find refuge; Deut. 32:11; Is. 31:5; Matt. 23:37; Luke 13:34]. His ·truth [faithfulness] will be your shield and ·protection [buckler; C a small shield]. 5 You will not fear any ·danger by [terror at] night or an arrow that flies during the day. 6 ·You will not be afraid of diseases [L …or the pestilence] that ·come [walks; stalks] in the dark or ·sickness [L stings] that ·strikes [devastates; overpowers] at noon. 7 At your side one thousand people may ·die [L fall], or even ten thousand ·right beside you [L at your right hand], but ·you will not be hurt [L it will not touch you]. 8 You will only ·watch [L look with your eyes] and see the wicked ·punished [recompensed].
9 ·The Lord is your protection [L For you, Lord, are my refuge]; you have made God Most High your ·place of safety [dwelling place]. 10 Nothing ·bad [evil; harmful] will ·happen to [befall] you; no ·disaster [blow; or plague] will ·come to [approach] your ·home [L tent]. 11 He has ·put his angels in charge of [L commanded his angels/messengers concerning] you to ·watch over [keep; guard] ·you wherever you go [L all your ways]. 12 They will ·catch you [lift you up] in their hands so that you will not hit your foot on a rock [Matt. 4:6; Luke 4:10–11]. 13 You will ·walk [tread] on lions and cobras; you will ·step on [trample] strong lions and snakes.
14 The Lord says, “Whoever ·loves [desires] me, I will ·save [rescue]. I will ·protect [lift to safety] those who know ·me [L my name]. 15 They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in ·trouble [distress]; I will rescue them and ·honor [glorify] them. 16 I will ·give them a long, full life [L satisfy them with length of days], and ·they will see how I can save [L show them my salvation/victory].”
