91:1 O thou that dwellest in the covert of the Most High, and abidest in the shadow of the Almighty;

91:2 I will say of the Lord, who is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust,

91:3 That He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

91:4 He will cover thee with His pinions, and under His wings shalt thou take refuge; His truth is a shield and a buckler.

91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flieth by day;

91:6 Of the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor of the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

91:7 A thousand may fall at Thy side, and ten thousand at Thy right hand; it shall not come nigh thee.

91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the recompense of the wicked.

91:9 For thou hast made the Lord who is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation.

91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.

91:11 For He will give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

91:12 They shall bear thee upon their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and asp; the young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under feet.

91:14 'Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he hath known My name.

91:15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him, and bring him to honour.

91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and make Him to behold My salvation.'
