The state of the godly.
Psalms 91:1 The praise of a canticle for David. He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob. Psalms 91:2 He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.
Psalms 91:3 For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word. Psalms 91:4 He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust. Psalms 91:5 His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night. Psalms 91:6 Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil. Psalms 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalms 91:8 But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked.
Psalms 91:9 Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge. Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.
Psalms 91:11 For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalms 91:12 In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Psalms 91:13 Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.
Their friend, with the effects of them all.
Psalms 91:14 Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name. Psalms 91:15 He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him. Psalms 91:16 I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.
