91:1Happy is he whose resting-place is in the secret of the Lord, and under the shade of the wings of the Most High;
91:2Who says of the Lord, He is my safe place and my tower of strength: he is my God, in whom is my hope.
91:3He will take you out of the bird-net, and keep you safe from wasting disease.
91:4You will be covered by his feathers; under his wings you will be safe: his good faith will be your salvation.
91:5You will have no fear of the evil things of the night, or of the arrow in flight by day,
91:6Or of the disease which takes men in the dark, or of the destruction which makes waste when the sun is high.
91:7You will see a thousand falling by your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it will not come near you.
91:8Only with your eyes will you see the reward of the evil-doers.
91:9Because you have said, I am in the hands of the Lord, the Most High is my safe resting-place;
91:10No evil will come on you, and no disease will come near your tent.
91:11For he will give you into the care of his angels to keep you wherever you go.
91:12In their hands they will keep you up, so that your foot may not be crushed against a stone.
91:13You will put your foot on the lion and the snake; the young lion and the great snake will be crushed under your feet.
91:14Because he has given me his love, I will take him out of danger: I will put him in a place of honour, because he has kept my name in his heart.
91:15When his cry comes up to me, I will give him an answer: I will be with him in trouble; I will make him free from danger and give him honour.
91:16With long life will he be rewarded; and I will let him see my salvation.
