Psalm 91World English Bible (WEB)

91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of Yahweh, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
    my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler,
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers.
    Under his wings you will take refuge.
    His faithfulness is your shield and rampart.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
    nor of the arrow that flies by day;
    nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
    nor of the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    and ten thousand at your right hand;
    but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes,
    and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Yahweh your refuge,
    and the Most High your dwelling place,
10 no evil shall happen to you,
    neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.
11 For he will put his angels in charge of you,
    to guard you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands,
    so that you won’t dash your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and cobra.
    You will trample the young lion and the serpent underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him.
    I will set him on high, because he has known my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him.
    I will be with him in trouble.
    I will deliver him, and honor him.
16 I will satisfy him with long life,
    and show him my salvation.”

Psalm 91Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Psalm 91

He who [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!

For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.

Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place,

10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.

11 For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].

12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

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 will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.
